The Sand track walk (south) starts from the southern end of the Beach Road picnic area, and takes you through forested hind dunes running parallel to the beach.
Easy enough for the whole family, this level walk wanders among the forest of majestic tall blackbutt trees, a reminder of the forests that were widespread along the coast until 200 years ago. There are also patches of rare bangalay sand forest and littoral rainforest along the way.
After a short time, you’ll emerge at the middle of Seven Mile Beach, halfway between Gerroa and Shoalhaven Heads. Here, you can admire the golden stretch of beach stretching out in both directions. Enjoy a swim here before retracing your step or and wander back along the beach, enjoying the sea breeze before sitting down for a picnic at Beach Road picnic area.
