This rustic picnic spot is the perfect base for a fun-filled day trip at the beach, in the southern reaches of Myall Lakes National Park. Just north of Hawks Nest, Hole in the Wall picnic area provides easy access to the seemingly endless golden sands and rolling waves of Mungo Beach.
Take in the fresh coastal air and sweeping views including Broughton Island and Dark Point to the south. Head down to the beach and dive into the sparkling waves for a refreshing swim. The fishing here is legendary with bream, tailor and Australian salmon often caught along this coastline.
When it’s time for lunch, spread out a feast on the tables and enjoy a leisurely, sand-free lunch. If you enjoy a walk, there are large stretches of beaches to explore, or you can tackle nearby Mungo walking track. Remember to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch or whale watch.
