If you’re looking to experience this spectacular stretch of pristine coastline in an hour or two, Rocky Point walking track is the perfect choice.

This short walk offers outstanding examples of Yuraygir’s stunning coastal landscape, with beautiful views of sandy beaches and rocky headlands. It’s an easy walk, suitable for all ages and fitness levels, making it a perfect family day trip. 

Starting at Illaroo South picnic area, you’ll have several walking tracks to choose from. Follow the track signs to enjoy wide coastal views, intimate forest shades or sandy beaches. 

For birdwatchers, be sure to pack your binoculars as this is a great area to see coastal birds such as ospreys and brahminy kites. In winter, enjoy whale watching as you admire the incredible humpback whales on their annual migration. And if you're looking for somewhere to pitch your tent, this track passes both Illaroo campground and Rocky Point campground.
