Burrawang Walking Track Review

This walk is an easy one to access and while not over long, being under 3km, it does have a few hills on the walk particularly if you head down to the beach as well as to the cliff edge lookout. Park at the trail head car park on Carr Street and begin your walk which is signposted.

The track itself is easy to follow but involves a bit of hill walking with an altitude change of 113 metres from the beach to the highest point. From the car park walk along the track past a forest of Cycads and tall Eucalyptus and head to the cliff face lookout. You will pass warning signs advising you to keep away from the cliff edge however the area has now been fenced off so this shouldn’t be a problem. Spend some time looking over the ocean and beach below before turning around and heading back. You will come to the turnoff point and if you go left here you will end up down as the beach where you can relax and swim, or walk along the beach before heading back top the hill to return to the car. When we did this walk we talked about what experience rating that we would give it and while not quite a ‘4’ on our scale we thought that is came close. I just love the coastal walks with spotted bark and prehistoric Cycads.

Please note that this part of the coast has a lot of Ticks so wear long pants and socks, and a long-sleeved top when doing this walk in the hotter moths of the year. Having said that this is a great family walk that is relatively easy and if the weather is warm enough bring a lunch and swim gear to take advantage of the beach access.
