This moderate track leads to a superb isolated beach in the southern precinct of Murramarang National Park, near Batemans Bay. You’ll feel like you’ve been castaway on a remote island; ideal for folks who like an adventurous nature getaway.

Winding through towering spotted gum forest, you’ll arrive at windswept Quirriga Beach, with views south to the rugged Tollgate Islands. Pack the snorkelling gear if you’d like to explore the underwater worlds along this unspoilt coastline.

Enjoy a beach picnic, fishing and swimming at this remote and rustic location. Keep your eyes to the oceans as you might spot whales, dolphins or sea eagles cruising above the waves on the sea breeze.
