Re-energise under a canopy of cabbage tree palms on this meandering, short loop through the rainforest of Munmorah.
You'll feel revived in the cool forest air surrounded by lush vegetation with shafts of sunlight streaming through palm fronds to guide your way. This enchanting walk is a visual feast, and isn't too challenging on the legs either. Look carefully and you may even spot some grey-headed flying foxes that feed in the cabbage tree palm forest during the summer.
Bring along supplies and take advantage of the tables at Palms picnic area, where the track begins and loops back to.
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.
