Kangarutha walking track is a challenging walk along Bournda National Park's rugged coastline. Gather your more energetic friends and family members together to spend a day exploring the pebbly beaches, sandy bays, pockets of rainforest and cliff-tops sections that this hiking route offers. Pack a picnic and find a lunch spot along the way with scenic ocean views. Enjoy swimming at one of the secluded beaches along the way.
From October to November, whales can often be seen migrating so bring your binoculars along. Keep them handy for birdwatching too as yellow-tailed and glossy black cockatoos are a common sight along this coast all year round.
There are various access points to Kangarutha walking track, so it can be broken into smaller walks such as Kianinny Bay to Boulder Bay, Wallagoot Lake Boat Club to Turingal Head, or part of the way to White Rock Quarry.
