A delightful walk that is bound to enliven the senses with scenic vistas, birdwatching and wildlife. Burrawang walking track winds through the largest preserved stand of spotted gums in coastal NSW. Starting near Depot Beach campground, this moderate track leads across Depot Beach Headland in Murramarang National Park, north of Batemans Bay.

Stop to admire the towering spotted gums with their pale mottled trunks, a stark contrast to the dark green understory of burrawangs. Listen for the ‘woop woop’ of the wonga pigeon echoing through the trees. You might even glimpse a lyrebird foraging for insects among the forest litter or startle a swamp wallaby darting through the bush.

Arriving at North Durras beach, be sure to take in the wild beauty and windswept views, and perhaps a spot of fishing. If you can’t get enough of the lush coastal forests, try Depot Beach Rainforest walk.
