A delightful collection of walks combine to create this absorbing track which joins Mungo Brush campground on the shores of Bombah Broadwater to Hawks Nest. It’s a long yet easy walk, taking in some important Aboriginal and post-colonial heritage sites, landforms, and diverse vegetation.
Set out towards the Myall River along Tamboi walking track arriving at the historic Tamboi village. Continuing south, meander along old sand dunes on historic mining routes, passing a part of the track between Brambles Green campground and Dark Point Aboriginal Place which is known for its splendid display of colourful wildflowers.
