This 10min walk is flat and paved, making it ideal for visitors with prams and wheelchairs. Opposite the carpark at the end of the walk is The Pass, a world-famous surfing beach that’s home to the oldest Aboriginal midden in the region.
Relax on the beach or head up to Fishermans Lookout, a fantastic place to spot migrating whales between June and November. If you’re up for a challenge, link up with Cape Byron walking track which offers incredible views over the headland.
NSW National Parks first recorded The Pass midden in Cape Byron State Conservation Area in 1980. And, in 2013, ancient archaeological midden material was repatriated and displayed on Country. Today, along with our Aboriginal community partners, NPWS works to protect The Pass midden, both now and into the future.
NSW national parks offers some amazing access-friendly walking tracks suitable for people with disability. Escape the city and explore some of the picturesque wheelchair-accessible tracks on offer.
