Hare Point walking track is a 6km, grade 5 Return hike located in the Jervis Bay National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.
Hare Point walking track begins at Red Point picnic area and meanders through Bangalay sand forest, across soft, deep sand, for approximately 3km to Hare Point at Carama Inlet on the northern shores of Jervis Bay.
Here, you can enjoy lovely, unspoilt views of the mangrove trees growing throughout the inlet. Winter is a great time to visit, when the weather is cooler and the crowds are nowhere to be seen.
Although the track is one-way, it can become a loop if you walk back along the beach.
