NSW National Parks walks in Eurobodalla

Gulaga Mountain walk

Bushwalking Australia
Gulaga is an ancestral icon of the Aboriginal Yuin people

Managed by New South Wales National Parks, Gulaga Mountain is within the Gulaga National Park and is one of the best walks to experience the natural environment of the hinterland of the Great Dividing Range in Eurobodalla. Gulaga mountain is a place of significant spiritual and cultural significance to the local indigenous community. A guided walk by local Yuin people will give walkers a cultural experience and deeper appreciation of the mother mountain. 

 The steep track up the mountain was built for gold miners in 1884 and continues to serve hikers today. The track starts behind the old ‘Pam’s Store’, now a French style creperie called La Galette, in historic Tilba Tilba. It’s a 4-5 hour return walk which will lead through deep green rainforest and past magnificent granite tors, historical features that are sacred to the Yuin women of the south coast of NSW.

Bingi Dreaming Track

One of the most significant Aboriginal and coastal walks in Eurobodalla

This coastal walk within the Eurobodalla National Park is of immense cultural significance to the traditional landowners. Indigenous tours explain its songlines as invisible threads with messages about food, water, laws and seasons. It also shares the relationship between prominent points like Gulaga Mountain and Montague Island (Baranguba), being important women’s and men’s places.

It is one of the best walks for experiencing natural coastal environments, leading hikers along sweeping beaches, over headlands, rocky outcrops and tidal estuaries.

Murramarang National Park

This national park, a few minutes north of Batemans Bay on the south coast of New South Wales, carries a network of walking tracks and is an extremely popular destination for hikers of all fitness levels. 

Walks are accessed from South or North Durras, with some of the most interesting coastal hikes leading south from the village of South Durras where the southern end of the vast 208 million year old Sydney Sandstone Basin gives way to even more ancient geological formations.

Easy tracks and trails

Walking doesn’t have to be strenuous. Eurobodalla has boardwalks, paved pathways and gentle bush walks for a leisurely amble through forests, conservation reserves, historic parks and villages. Try the Mill Bay boardwalk in Narooma or a bush track in the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Garden.

Burrewarra Point Banksia Walk

An easy walk on a sandy track will take you through the forest, past an old WW2 communications bunker and onto a lookout platform. Continue further around the point to see the headland beacon and southerly for a series of spectacular clifftop views which are perfect for landbased whale watching during the spring migration.

Exercise caution on the walk as there are no guard rails or safety fences along the cliff tops.
