A delightful walk that is bound to enliven the senses with scenic vistas, birdwatching and wildlife. Burrawang walking track winds through the largest preserved stand of spotted gums in coastal NSW. Starting near Depot Beach campground, this moderate track leads across Depot Beach Headland in Murramarang National Park, north of Batemans Bay.
Stop to admire the towering spotted gums with their pale mottled trunks, a stark contrast to the dark green understory of burrawangs. Listen for the 'woop woop' of the wonga pigeon echoing through the trees. You might even glimpse a lyrebird foraging for insects among the forest litter or startle a swamp wallaby darting through the bush.
Arriving at North Durras beach, be sure to take in the wild beauty and windswept views, and perhaps a spot of fishing. If you can't get enough of the lush coastal forests, try Depot Beach Rainforest walk.
About the region
Spanning 44km of dramatic coastline, Murramarang National Park is the ultimate spot to soak up some sun and explore the cliffs, headlands and pristine beaches of the NSW south coast. Be sure to pack your swimmers to hit the surf, binoculars for spotting peregrine falcons and sea eagles soaring high above the cliffs, and your fishing rod to catch dinner.
This is one of the rare spots in Australia where the spotted gums grow right down to the ocean, offering plenty of shade in the warmer months and a stunning backdrop for a nature escape all year round. When you're ready to take a break from the stunning beaches you can opt to canoe or walk around Durras lake instead. The Durras lake discovery trail is perfect for kids.
