From here the walk starts its southward journey to Saltwater Creek. The walk explores a number of picturesque bays with bright red rocks and imposing sea cliffs. Leather Jacket Bay about halfway along makes a nice place to relax with beaches bays and headlands to explore. The last half of this walk includes a few open grassland sections providing some panoramic views.
About the region
Ben Boyd National Park spans 47km of rocky coastline and sheltered inlets. Located near the whale watching town of Eden on the far South Coast of NSW, its crystal clear waters are perfect for snorkelling and swimming.
Ben Boyd National Park is separated into 2 areas, split by Twofold Bay. Take your pick from the sparkling lakes and surf beaches in the park’s Pambula-Haycock area to the rocky cliffs and beachside campgrounds in the Green Cape area.
Its spectacular sea-carved landscape is a striking display of folded red rock platforms that contrast against the sapphire blue water of the ocean.
