The Murramarang South Coast Walk
The Murramarang South Coast Walk is a 46-kilometre multi-day walking trail on the South Coast of the New South Wales. The walk will start near Batemans Bay and traverse the spectacular coastline of Murramarang National Park. The walk will connect the coastal villages of Maloney’s Beach, Durras, Depot Beach, Kioloa and Bawley Point. The walk will deliver an outstanding immersive visitor experience in one of the most stunning and pristine stretches of coastline in NSW. The natural landscapes, vegetation and wildlife combines with ancient rock formations and ocean vistas to create many memorable moments for walkers.
What the project involves
The combination of nature and existing overnight accommodation in the coastal villages, presents a very exciting opportunity to create a new multi-day walking experience on the South Coast
The walk can be completed over 4 easy days, that can be undertaken as self-guided or via commercial tour operators offering various levels of assistance and experiences to individuals or groups.
The walker will be able to choose from luxury accommodation in resort villas, affordable beach shacks or cabins, or camp in one of the Parks’ camping areas. The walk is also perfectly suited to be undertaken as separate day walks and includes a new trail head and facilities at Maloneys beach near Batemans Bay.
Originally inspired by local bushwalkers, the walk will promote the culture and heritage of the region and provide broad physical and mental health benefits through access to recreational facilities and the natural environment. Rock pools and secluded beaches with a backdrop of forested hills and spotted gum forest floors smothered in Burrawang palms, are just a few of the delights visitors can expect to discover. With only a simple day pack required between overnight stops, the walker will encounter the solitude and tranquility that only immersion in nature can provide.
The Murramarang South Coast Walk has been awarded $3.64 million funding by the NSW Regional Growth – Environment and Tourism Fund program, an initiative of the NSW Department of Industry, that provides funding for infrastructure that supports regional economic growth, creates local employment opportunities, and drives growth in the visitor economy.
