This walking track takes you through coastal dune forest, past coastal lakes and along sandy beaches to see spectacular coastal views at Nuggan Point.

Catch glimpses through the trees to the tranquillity of Willinga and Meroo Lakes, where bangalay-banksia forest gives way to swamp forest, sedgeland and wet heath. Walk along Meroo Beach and search for interesting shells, enjoy swimming in the glistening waters or go whale watching.

If you like fishing, why not pack your gear and settle in for a few hours of great fishing at Nuggan Point. It’s also a lovely place to picnic, with plenty of birdwatching opportunities, like sea eagles flying overhead and the superb blue wren darting about in the bushes.
