The upgraded Light to Light Walk will support visitors to undertake an immersive multi-day experience with a range of accommodation options in one of the most impressive settings in Australia. The project will deliver a spectacular 30-kilometre coastal walk, supported by new hut accommodation and upgraded camping facilities, in Beowa National Park on the Sapphire Coast of New South Wales.
What the project involves
The upgraded Light to Light Walk will allow a wider range of visitors to undertake a multi-day walk that highlights the many special characteristics of the Far South Coast, including remoteness, coastal connection and cultural heritage.
The walk will be able to be undertaken as self-guided or guided with licensed commercial tour operators offering various levels of service to individuals or groups. All accommodation along the walk (campgrounds and huts) will be owned and managed by National Parks and Wildlife Service.
Accommodation will range from low-key campsites where walkers need to bring everything (Mowarry Point, Saltwater Creek and Bittangabee Bay) to huts where simple bedding and a communal kitchen will be available (Mowarry Point and Hegartys Bay).
The Light to Light Walk will promote the important environmental, cultural and heritage aspects of the region, and provide physical and mental health benefits through increased access to the natural environment.
