Murramarang Coast Journey - Departing Batemans Bay - 3 Days
- Duration: 3 Days (approx.)
- Location: Batemans Bay, NSW
- Product code: PE1KBH
Coast of NSW is famous for its temperate climate and amazing natural wonders.
The area of Murramarang National Park is no exception.
On this journey, your guides will pick you up from
your Batemans Bay accommodation and transport you to this exquisite National
Park for three remarkable days. Every day along this journey is surprisingly
different. You will traverse ancient geological structures and numerous unique
beaches; head off the beaten path under towering eucalyptus canopies and emerge
onto clifftops with breathtaking vistas. Walking
with only a day pack, you will enjoy relative weightlessness, allowing you to
save your energy for deep exploration, optional sea kayaking and side hikes,
swimming and snorkelling. Along the way, pause for
delicious meals and hot drinks in secluded pockets of National Park.
By late afternoon each day, you will kick
off your walking shoes and enjoy the comfort of luxurious waterfront villa
accommodation, complimentary bubbly and massages, and evening meals lovingly prepared
by your experienced guides. We allow plenty of downtime, so you can spend your
afternoons doing what you love: feeling the sand between your toes, swimming in
crystal clear water, birdwatching, reading, yoga, or simply doing nothing.

730am - Hotel pickup
Your driver and guide will greet you
at your pickup location, before loading your cabin baggage into our van and traveling
just 45 minutes north of Batemans Bay to the southern end of Murramarang
National Park. While you travel in our comfortable air-conditioned vehicle, you
will have the opportunity to discuss your interests with your guide and aid in
selecting the best suited sections of the park to explore throughout your journey.
8:30am - With only your day packs (available for use from Region X if required),
step into another world and leave civilisation
behind as we enter this exquisite coastline via a forested trail. We will take
our time to soak up the diversity of the quintessentially Australian landscape;
stopping to discuss the significance of the geology in the area, the rich
Indigenous history and the impact of early colonisation and industry. Keep your
eyes peeled for dolphin and seals playing, soaring birds of prey, and migrating
whales (June to November) as we cross the clifftops and beaches.
Along the journey, you will also learn
about the impact of recent bushfires throughout the Park and its remarkable resilience
and witness the epicormic regrowth first-hand.
Stop for refreshments and lunch at
any number of secluded beaches, before passing through the ancient sandstone
passages to your first night’s accommodation. Lounging kangaroos and many other
native species greet you at the door of your twin share beachfront villa.
4pm - Enjoy complimentary bubbly and light
refreshments as we celebrate the completion of the first day together on the
trail. Your will have some some free time prior to a delicious dinner at the onsite
restaurant, followed by a restful night in luxury.
8:30am - Beach
After a relaxed breakfast on your cabin deck, we
load your baggage into our vehicle for transfer and set off walking along the
beach (this is also the day to perhaps trade your
walking shoes for an unforgettable sea kayaking experience!). Relish in a barefoot beach walk section across Durras Beach
and possible shallow lake crossing, with time for a quick dip to cool down and
northern end of the beach is a great spot to rest prior to the uphill
rainforest climb to the breathtaking lookout of Point Upright. Enjoy lunch with
a view before descending to your next night’s accommodation at Depot Beach - one
of the coast’s remnant logger’s camps, now an exclusive holiday destination.
4pm - Settle into
your accommodation and enjoy an afternoon of exploring the area. Your guides will
be happy to show you around, or taking you snorkelling. Meet your masseuse at
your cabin for a complimentary massage to reward yourself for completing day 2
of the journey! Dinner tonight will be a social affair - lovingly prepared by
your guides and served on the cabin deck.
Day 3 - Rainforest
8:30 - After
breakfast, leave the comfort of your accommodation and stroll off along the
trail to iconic Pebbly Beach where resident kangaroos have found fame as
visitors come to photograph them lazing on the beach in true Australian style.
The beach is also a popular surf spot and one of the prettiest beaches on the
winds over ridges and down to the sand, and creeks meet the ocean here as the
dominant Durras Mountain (the largest mountain in the area) provides a
watershed and pockets of rainforest relish in the moisture. We too will spend
some time soaking up the beauty of this lush landscape.
along the way, you spend the day discovering yet another vastly different
section of this National Park. We will conclude our journey with a celebratory
swim and light refreshments at the aptly named Pretty Beach. Here, your driver
will be ready to collect you and return you to your Batemans Bay hotel of choice.

your hotel. We encourage our groups to meet up for a post tour dinner in town
