Dotted with grass trees and with myriad birds winging across your path, this walk through coastal heathland is a delight.
The paths are wide and offer sweeping views over Timber Beach, Ghosties Beach and Moonee Beach - bring the camera for some picture-perfect shots. In late winter and early spring, you'll also witness a blaze of colour as wildflowers bloom across the heath.
The real highlight of this walk reveals itself as you descend onto spectacular Moonee Beach. You'll feel far from the madding crowds on this private sandy shoreline. Spend the day swimming or snorkelling in the turquoise water and don't forget to explore the protected rockpool area.
About the region
Pristine beaches, beautiful picnic and camping spots, first-class fishing and grand views are just a taste of what is on offer at Munmorah State Conservation Area. Munmorah State Conservation Area is a park for all seasons. Beautiful, sandy surf beaches, craggy coastlines, tranquil bays and dazzling ocean views make this a place to return to time and again. Bushwalking, camping, fishing, surfing and swimming are just some of the many activities you can enjoy at Munmorah. Bring your binoculars to spot passing whales in winter and keep an eye out for some of the incredible bird species that call this park home – you might see a bar-shouldered dove in the coastal dunes or the southern emu wren on the low coastal heaths. Part of the Sydney Basin, Munmorah State Conservation Area illustrates the impressive geology of the region – the views are spectacular and it's no wonder, they’ve been millions of years in the making.
