Oaky Beach walking track is a 2.4km, grade 3 Return hike located in the Murramarang National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.

Summary

A great off the beaten track hike, Oaky Beach walking track leads through gums and rainforest to a secluded beach in the southern area of Murramarang National park. Only a short drive north of Batemans Bay, near North Head campground, you could be forgiven for thinking you were miles from civilisation.
The track snakes through a stand of towering lilly pillies, which burst with edible pink berries in the warmer months. Crossing a grassy clearing and a stand of she-oaks, keep an eye out for swamp wallabies and lyrebirds. Passing through a swamp gully, you might hear the unmistakable call of the eastern whipbird before emerging at the beach.
If you’re lucky, it might just be you and the oystercatchers on the beach. Cool off with a swim, try a spot of fishing or simply unpack the picnic basket and sit back and enjoy the rugged beauty of the unspoilt coastline.
