Bushwalks

Every sort of bushwalk is available on the Wilderness Coast. This includes day walks, overnight walks and extended expedition type walks.

Day walks: Many one day, half day and shorter walks can be done from various access points along the coast. These vary in distance, terrain and scenery providing something for everyone. The access points referred to are as follows. Detailed descriptions of each walk can be found in our guidebook. Saltwater Bay and Bittangabee Bay in Ben Boyd National Park, New South Wales. Mallacoota, Shipwreck Creek, Wingan Inlet and Thurra River in Croajingolong National Park, Victoria. Cape Conran in Victoria.

Overnight walks: This includes an extended 18 day walk from Eden to Cape Conran or shorter bits of that walk varying from 2 to 6 days in duration. Detailed information on all these walks can be obtained from our guidebook 'Walking the Wilderness Coast'.

The first overnight walk at the New South Wales end of the wilderness coast takes 3 days through the southern section of Ben Boyd National Park from Red Point to Greencape Lighthouse. This is a medium grade walk with impressive views and cosy campsites.

The second overnight walk from Wonboyn to Mallacoota through Nadgee Nature Reserve and Croajingolong National Park is a 4 to 6 day medium to hard wilderness walk. This section is the wilderness coasts jewel in the crown. A permit is required to do this walk.

This third overnight walk takes 4 or 5 days and is of a medium to hard standard. It begins in Mallacoota and finishes at Thurra River. This is another very attractive wilderness walk. It takes you through the Sandpatch wilderness area of Croajingolong National Park and because of this walkers require a permit.

The next extended walk is of a hard standard and takes 4 days to complete. It begins at Thurra River and finishes at Cape Conran. It is an area not walked by many people and features some long, lonely and isolated beaches.

The last extended overnight walk is of a medium standard and can be completed in 2 or 3 days. It begins at Corringle near Marlo and finishes at Lake Tyers. It is an isolated beach walk with nice protected campsites with good views over Ewings Morass.
