Get away from it all and escape to this beautiful, isolated beach for the day. Surround yourself with natural bushland and revel in the sounds of birdsong on Myrtle Beach walking track.
This easy walk takes you through what the locals call the 'enchanted forest', an incredible display of stunted spotted gum forest that have been warped and twisted by the salt air and coastal winds. Before you know it, you'll step onto sandy shores and be surrounded by the high cliffs of Myrtle Beach.
Pack a picnic and spend the afternoon picnicking with the sounds of the ocean behind you. Take a dip in the pristine waters and enjoy swimming, snorkelling and surfing. Or bring your fishing rod and unwind as you enjoy birdwatching with fishing rod in hand. Keep your eyes out for sea eagles and peregrine falcons soaring overhead. You might even spot a kangaroos passing on the beach.
