The walk from Saltwater Creek to Bittangabee Bay is a gently undulating section of the iconic Light to Light walk in Beowa National Park on the NSW Far South Coast. It passes through lovely sections of coastal forest, heath and rock platforms. There’s also great opportunities for birdwatching and whale watching during migration season.

If you’re looking to stay overnight, pitch your tent at either Saltwater Creek campground or Bittangabee Bay, at either end of the walk. For somewhere a bit more remote to rest your head, try remote camping at Hegartys Bay, in the southern section of the park. 

Late May to early December, and particularly throughout September, is an ideal time for whale watching along this track, as you’re likely to spot whales migrating along the coast. If you’re keen on birdwatching, be sure to keep your eyes open too for endangered ground parrots or rare striated field wrens.
