Bluff loop walking track is a great track for kids or anyone keen to explore the coastal forests of Bongil Bongil National Park, near Coffs Harbour.

Starting and ending at the locked gate, Bluff loop walking track winds through coastal rainforest thick with vines, palms and tall trees, in a protected area behind the sand dunes. Bring your binoculars to spot the local birdlife. If you're lucky you may even see a koala in the treetops.

Bluff loop picnic area, is a lovely spot where you can enjoy a relaxing picnic at the top of the forested seaside bluff. Up on the ridge, you’ll discover an astonishing range of eucalypt species including forest red gum, red mahogany and pink bloodwood.

Further along the track, a short 120m side track takes you to a secluded timber viewing platform over Bundageree Creek. From here, continue along Bluff loop walking track until it meets Bundageree Rainforest walk. Turn right to loop back to your start point via the rainforest walk and Tuckers Rock Road.

Aboriginal walking tours of Bluff loop walking track are available for school groups, to discover the history and culture of the traditional Gumbaynggirr People of this area.
