Bay Cliff walking track is a 1.2km, grade 3 circuit hike, located in the Nadgee Nature Reserve, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 45mins to complete.

Hike Summary

On the Bay Cliff walking track, you'll follow the edge of Wonboyn Lake where you can see pelicans and waterbirds feeding, with shell middens around the shore. Then head through the forest to secluded Wonboyn Beach. The views across Disaster Bay and the magnificent outcrop of Bay Cliff only emphasise the reserve's beauty.
There are also plenty of resting spots for little legs on this short walk. Indulge in some fishing in the lake or sea, it's especially rewarding here.
Look for the yellow-tailed black cockatoos in the woodland; they love stripping the paperbark trees for the wood grubs underneath. At dusk, look out for elusive ringtail possums. These nocturnal creatures may just be waking up for the night.
