The Bundagaree Rainforest walk takes you on a gentle hike along the coastal fringe of Bongil Bongil National Park.
With rainforest on one side of the dunes, including red olive berry, coastal banksias and staghorns, you're sure to see a variety of rainforest birds, including Lewin’s honeyeaters and satin bowerbirds. You might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of a male satin bowerbird’s bower; two parallel walls of sticks that are then decorated with blue coloured objects with the aim of attracting a mate.
The track leaves the rainforest at the rocky shoreline of Bundagaree creek, great for exploring the rockpools or enjoying the view.
The track is well marked, and you can choose to walk both ways through the rainforest or return along the beach. If you choose the beach walk, look out for the white-bellied eagle soaring and swooping in the sky.
The Bundagaree Rainforest walk is a great choice for a day walk, and if you have time you can stop off at the Bluff loop picnic area for a picnic along the way.
