Headland Walking Track

Natural Attractions

Headland walking track is a short, leisurely stroll that takes you through lovely rainforest to the headland. Experience amazing views out over Saltwater Beach, Khappinghat Creek and Pacific Ocean.

If you’re an eager whale-watcher, you’ll love to walk to the viewing platform to spot humpback and Brydes whales migrating from May through November. The whole family can learn more about these majestic marine mammals from the information boards at the end of the track.

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for other interesting, endangered or vulnerable species, such as the little tern and pied oystercatchers. On Wallabi Beach, look up to spot glorious white-bellied sea eagles that often soar overhead. If you’re particularly lucky, you might even see an osprey as it plummets into the ocean to catch fish.
