Pot Holes walking track is a short walk with no signage through stunted heathland to unspoilt coastline. With scenic views and picturesque places to picnic along the way, it makes for a great day trip from Ulladulla or Batemans Bay .
It’s a popular walk amongst the locals heading out for an early morning walk and those on their way to go surfing at Pot Holes Beach. Bring your fishing gear and see what you can catch, or enjoy swimming and whale watching at this magical spot.
It’s a beautiful place all year round, but in spring the heathland bursts with the brilliant colours of the wildflowers such as common fringe lily, orchids and grevillea. Winter is also a great time to visit when the banksias are in flower, attracting birds like honeyeaters, so there are plenty of birdwatching opportunities. Keep a lookout because if you are lucky, you may even get a chance to experience some spectacular whale watching.
