Malabar Headland walking track

National Parks and Wildlife Service is improving the Boora Point walking track in Malabar Headland National Park.

Malabar Coastal Walk, Malabar Headland National ParkMalabar Headland is of great importance to the local community, greater Sydney and beyond. It has exceptional cultural and natural heritage values with culturally rich Aboriginal heritage and many important World War II heritage items.

The newest section of the walking track between Malabar and Maroubra beaches will provide visitors with safe, spectacular coastal views of Malabar Headland National Park in Sydney's east.

National Parks and Wildlife Service has been constructing walking tracks in Malabar Headland National Park to improve public safety and enjoyment of the new national park. The most recent section of the track links Malabar and Maroubra beaches with a formal walking track across the headland. This track was constructed as part of the biggest infrastructure investment in NSW national parks.

The northern wheelchair accessible section of boardwalk from Maroubra Beach was completed several years ago and has now been extended by 510 metres to reach Magic Point. A new connecting walking track then provides access all the way to Boora Point. The walk also passes sections of endangered ecological community Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub and offers great opportunities for winter whale watching.

More information on Malabar Headland National Park and advice on park closures can be found on the National Parks and Wildlife Service website.


This project is now complete, and the walking tracks are now open.

In accordance with NSW planning legislation, we have carried out rigorous environmental assessment of the site with input from relevant specialists. The new walking track is a key management direction from the Statement of Management Intent: Malabar Headland National Park. In addition, we undertook community consultation for this new track in 2016, which had wide support.
