The arched rock is just off the headland north-east of Barmouth Beach and is an interesting rock formation. The walk winds along the hillside above Barmouth Beach which is a worthy side trip and continues to the unfenced clearing that looks down to the arched rock. This walk will inspire the geologist in us all as we try to figure out how the rock arch was made.
About the region
Ben Boyd National Park spans 47km of rocky coastline and sheltered inlets. Located near the whale watching town of Eden on the far South Coast of NSW, its crystal clear waters are perfect for snorkelling and swimming.
Ben Boyd National Park is separated into 2 areas, split by Twofold Bay. Take your pick from the sparkling lakes and surf beaches in the park’s Pambula-Haycock area to the rocky cliffs and beachside campgrounds in the Green Cape area.
Its spectacular sea-carved landscape is a striking display of folded red rock platforms that contrast against the sapphire blue water of the ocean.
