Honeysuckle Beach walking track is a great short hike in the southern end of Murramarang National Park, just north of Batemans Bay. It’s an ideal walk for people wanting to take in the awe inspiring views of the south coast while avoiding the crowds.   

Leading through wind-sculpted spotted gums to the lookout, gaze across to the picturesque islands. Ideal for birdwatching, the white-breasted sea eagles are known to scour the nearby ocean for fish. Arriving at black-pebbled Honeysuckle, keep an eye out for gannets, shearwaters and petrels out to sea, or the threatened sooty oystercatcher foraging on the rocks.

Cool off with a swim in the crystal clear waves and roll out the blanket for a picnic on the sand. If you want to try your hand at fishing, you might catch whiting, tailor or snapper (this is part of a marine park, so please check restrictions). When you’re ready, head back along the track and if you want to extend your stay, pitch your tent at North Head campground.
