Boora Point walking track is a 3.7km, grade 4 return hike, located in the Malabar Headland National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

Boora Point walking track is a hidden gem in Malabar Headland National Park. It's the perfect spot to escape the hustle and bustle of Sydney, spending a couple of hours immersed in nature.
With sweeping views up and down the coast, explore this track in whale season and keep your eyes peeled for humpback whales. You might even be lucky enough to spot the rarer southern right whale as they journey north to warm tropical waters. Both Boora Point and Magic Point provide many vantage points for viewing along the way, so don't forget your binoculars. However, be sure to stay well back from the cliff edges.
After working up a sweat, you can cool off with a dip in Maroubra Beach or Malabar Beach at either end. You'll find picnic tables and barbecues in Arthur Byrne Reserve at the northern end of the track, so why not bring lunch and make a day of it.
