Hike Summary

Angophora grove walking track is an easy stroll from Illaroo picnic area through bushland adorned with gracious old angophoras. These native Australian trees are also known as smooth-barked apples because European settlers thought they resembled apple trees. Despite being closely related to eucalypts, angophoras are actually part of the myrtle family. Tea tree, coastal cypress and coastal banksia are also part of this forest.
Bring along your binoculars as migrating humpback whales may be visible in season, and osprey and brahminy kites are common to the area.
The walk can be done as a return trip, or it can be linked with Rocky Point track, which offers scenic headland and beach views.
