Pebbly Beach to Durras Mountain walking track is a 6.6km, grade 4 return hike, located in the Murramarang National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 4hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

Starting from well-known Pebbly Beach picnic area, this return walk is a great day out that explores some of Murramarang National Park's golden beaches, coastal forest and stunning viewpoints.
From the grassy slopes of the picnic area, where you'll often see mobs of kangaroos grazing, head north-east along the track for around 1.2km until you reach the junction with the Mount Durras track. The steep climb up Durras Mountain threads through the forest of spotted gum, coachwood and lillypilly, offering plenty of ocean glimpses.
When you reach the top, reward yourself with a picnic while taking in the views inland to Morton and Budawang National Parks, and east across the Pacific Ocean. From May to October you might even see migrating humpback whales.
Return to Pebbly Beach (downhill) along the same route, and enjoy a night or 2 at the campground or comfortable shacks. If you're looking for a longer walk, you can easily combine your Durras Mountain climb with the Pretty Beach to Durras Mountain track, or coastal Pebbly Beach to Snake Bay track.

About the region

Spanning 44km of dramatic coastline, Murramarang National Park is the ultimate spot to soak up some sun and explore the cliffs, headlands and pristine beaches of the NSW south coast. Be sure to pack your swimmers to hit the surf, binoculars for spotting peregrine falcons and sea eagles soaring high above the cliffs, and your fishing rod to catch dinner.

This is one of the rare spots in Australia where the spotted gums grow right down to the ocean, offering plenty of shade in the warmer months and a stunning backdrop for a nature escape all year round. When you're ready to take a break from the stunning beaches you can opt to canoe or walk around Durras lake instead. The Durras lake discovery trail is perfect for kids.
