This short stroll packs quite a punch with breathtaking coastal views leading to culturally significant Dark Point Aboriginal Place, near Hawks Nest on the central coast. Also known as Little Gibber, Dark Point walking track starts at the carpark on Mungo Brush Road leading to the headland overlooking Broughton Island. It’s a great spot to take in the unique history of the area, while on a camping holiday in Myall Lakes National Park.
Following this rough unformed track through coastal dunes behind the beach, stop and take in the refreshing breeze off the ocean. Passing by historic middens, this moderate path leads to Dark Point, an area rich with cultural and historical significance for the Worimi People.
