Looking for a great place to survey Batemans Bay and the nearby islands? This charming walk through fragrant spotted gum forest follows a vehicle management trail, with plenty of honeyeaters, little lorikeets, and echidnas foraging around the burrawangs below.

After a short hike, you reach the scenic Square Head, where generous views out to sea encompass Batemans Bay, Long Beach, Snapper Island, and the two Tollgate islands. Keep the camera handy – you might even spot a pair of endangered gang-gang cockatoos perched in the bush.

The nearby estuary beach offers a terrific picnic spot. If you enjoy fishing, an informal access track to the water below is popular with rock fishermen from the local area.
