If you long for a challenging walk to clear the head and work the body, the Curra Moors loop track through the eastern section of Royal National Park is just the ticket. The bush meets the sea with dramatic sandstone cliffs and spectacular coastal views, so there are plenty of scenic views.
The track will lead you through woodlands of scribbly gums and angophoras before opening up to heathland. If you like birdwatching, be sure to look for the nectar loving lewins honey eater and the eastern spinebill. If you're here in spring, the wildflowers, in particular the hakeas, are the ultimate in aroma therapy.
Stop for a break at the spectacular Curracurrong waterfall, or take the short detour north to Eagle Rock. Keep an eye out for whales, in season, as you follow the coastal track south to Garie North Head. Stop for a picnic lunch and soak up the spectacular panoramic views.
Take a virtual tour of Curra Moors loop track captured with Google Street View Trekker.
