The Murramarang South Coast Walk is a 48-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 and Murramarang Aboriginal Area. The walk will connect the coastal villages of Maloneys Beach, Durras, Depot Beach, Kioloa and Bawley Point.
The walk will deliver an outstanding immersive visitor experience in one of the most stunning 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 within Murramarang National Park and the coastal villages, presents a very exciting opportunity to create a new multi-day walking experience on the South Coast.
You can complete the walk over four or five easy days, that can be undertaken as self-guided or via commercial tour operators. You 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 suited to be undertaken as separate day walks.
Inspired by local bushwalkers, the walk will promote the culture and heritage of the region. Rock pools and secluded beaches with a backdrop of forested hills and spotted gum forest floors smothered in Burrawang palms, are some 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 tranquillity that only immersion in nature can provide.
The Murramarang South Coast Walk has been awarded $3.64 million by the NSW Regional Growth – Environment and Tourism Fund program, an initiative of the NSW Department of Industry and Environment, that provides funding for infrastructure that supports regional economic growth, creates local employment opportunities, and drives growth in the visitor economy. The National Parks and Wildlife Service has been allocated this funding to design and construct a new walk that will attract visitors to the South Coast in off-peak and shoulder periods.
