Wasp Head walk is a 2km, grade 3 Return hike located in the Murramarang National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 45mins to complete.
This short, scenic walk in Murramarang National Park, south of Durras Lake, is a delightful easy walk taking in coastal views and golden beaches in this spectacular part of the coast, north of Bateman’s Bay. Walking north from Wasp Head picnic area takes you through a casuarina forest and opens up to a fantastic view of Wasp Island.
Heading south along the path you’ll reach Emily Miller Head where you can gaze down to a dramatic rocky cove of Wobbegong Bay. Another off shoot of the path leads down to the beach where you may discover an alluring sea cave, depending on the tide levels. This whole area is renowned for its rich Aboriginal heritage; keep an eye out for evidence of shell middens along the way.
If you’re charmed by the dramatic coastline and want to make a weekend of it, head to Pretty Beach campground or stay a night at the rustic cabins.
