Honeysuckle Beach walking track is a great short hike in the southern end of Murramarang National Park, just north of Batemans Bay. It's an ideal walk for people wanting to take in the awe inspiring views of the south coast while avoiding the crowds.
Leading through wind-sculpted spotted gums to the lookout, gaze across to the picturesque islands. Ideal for birdwatching, the white-breasted sea eagles are known to scour the nearby ocean for fish. Arriving at black-pebbled Honeysuckle, keep an eye out for gannets, shearwaters and petrels out to sea, or the threatened sooty oystercatcher foraging on the rocks.
Cool off with a swim in the crystal clear waves and roll out the blanket for a picnic on the sand. If you want to try your hand at fishing, you might catch whiting, tailor or snapper (this is part of a marine park, so please check restrictions). When you're ready, head back along the track and if you want to extend your stay, pitch your tent at North Head campground.
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.
