Hare Point walking track begins at Red Point picnic area and meanders eastward through Bangalay sand forest, across soft, deep sand, for almost 3km to Hare Point at Carama Inlet.
Located on the northern shores of Jervis Bay, near Callala Bay, it's a lovely spot to combine bushwalking, birdwatching, beaches and picnicking. Enjoy unspoilt views of mangroves growing throughout the inlet, and spot birdlife amongst the forest, and by the water.
Winter is a great time to visit, when the weather is cooler and the crowds are nowhere to be seen. You might even see whales visiting Jervis Bay.
Return the way you came, or if it's not high tide, you can loop back to the picnic area along the beach.
