Mimosa Rocks walking track is a 1km, grade 2 one way hike, located in the Mimosa Rocks National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 30mins to complete.

Hike Summary

The Mimosa Rocks walking track is in the northern section of the park, it's an easy walk so a great one for children, plus it is wheelchair accessible.
Start your walk at Aragunnu carpark - there's a well-defined track linking the section's two picnic areas. Follow this short track then continue north another 250m on a paved path and boardwalk.
The boardwalk crosses over the largest Aboriginal midden in the park - take your time to read about the history and significance of the area along the way.
At the boardwalk's end, you'll be rewarded with dramatic views over the rocks from the lookout. Keep an eye out for the large pyramid-shaped rock - beneath it rests the shipwrecked Mimosa, a paddle steamer that ran aground in 1863, and after which the park is named.

About the region

Located not far from Bega on the far south coast of NSW, Mimosa Rocks National Park offers a great camping holiday. Visit today to go fishing or birdwatching.

Just a short drive from Bega, Mimosa Rocks National Park offers up show-stopping headland views, beaches and pure lagoons, and you’ll be spoilt for choice with lookouts, rainforest pockets and historic sites to explore.

The park takes its name from the Paddle Steamer Mimosa that wrecked in 1863 after running onto rocks at the northern end of the park. The rocks of Mimosa have distinctive castle-like features that are the result of intricate folds, faults and intrusions occurring in the rock. For a view you’ll never forget, head to Bunga Head for sunrise, the rocks look magnificent backed by the pinks of the early morning sky.
