Murramarang South Coast Walk updates June 2020

The Murramarang South Coast Walk is a 48-kilometre multi-day walking trail on the South Coast of 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 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 New South Wales. The natural landscapes, vegetation and wildlife combines with ancient rock formations and ocean vistas to create many memorable moments for walkers.

Fires in Murramarang National Park

Murramarang National Park has been severely impacted by bushfire with the majority of the park burnt with varying intensity. All sections of the track affected by fire have been assessed with significant damage observed. We are working towards reopening all of the park's walking tracks as early as possible, however, we have a lot of work beforehand to ensure visitor safety.

Most of the visitor facilities at Pretty Beach, Depot Beach and Yellow Rock were not affected by fire. All except Pebbly Beach reopened on 1 June 2020 when the COVID-19 travel restrictions ease.

Community Engagement

The public release of the draft master plan and review of environmental factors have been delayed and will need rethinking to comply with COVID-19 restrictions. We will notify our registered stakeholders when exhibition dates are known. If you have not already registered you can do so on the project page.
