If the scenic coastal views don't take your breath away, the steep climb to the top of the mountain will. Pretty Beach to Durras Mountain walking track highlights the beautiful coastal forests of Murramarang National Park, near Pretty Beach campground.
Following the track from the campground, make your way past the lazing kangaroos. The path climbs steadily through coachwood and unique coastal rainforest. At the top of Durras Mountain, you'll be rewarded with coastal and scenic mountain views. You're likely to hear eastern whipbirds and wonga pigeons any time of year.
From the mountain top, retrace your steps, or if you've still got energy to burn, continue on the longer walk to Pebbly Beach picnic area. If you're smitten with this beautiful region, be sure to check out the cosy cabins available at Pretty Beach.
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.
