Keen to meet Jervis Bay’s birdlife? Follow the lead of the local birdwatchers who designed this delightful walk, which is also known as Bird Spotter's walk. They’ve even added signs to explain the birds you’ll see and hear along the way.
Keep an eye out for some of the birds the Jervis Bay area is known for, like new holland honey-eaters, eastern spinebills, eastern rosellas, and crimson rosellas.
Start at Lister Crescent at the southern end of Hyams Beach village. Walk about 1km, then turn left at the intersection and continue a short distance to the beautiful Seamans Beach.
You can head back along the trail for more birdwatching, or take an easy walk along the white sand of Hyams Beach.
