Monument Beach ride from Bendalong

Natural Attractions

Monument Beach ride from Bendalong is one of many cycling routes weaving through Conjola National Park. This route takes you along unsealed roads through turpentine and blackbutt forest to Monument Beach picnic area where there are scenic views of the rocky coastline and vast ocean.
The monument commemorates the wreck of the clipper ship Walter Hood, which was originally built for trade between Australia and China. In 1870, bound for Sydney, Walter Hood was caught in a gale and wrecked on the reef off Monument Beach. The monument is also the burial site of the captain and crew.
Pack a picnic and go for a cycle with family or friends along this well-signposted route. In spring the landscape will be alive with wildflowers such as wattle and banksia. You’ll also want to keep your binoculars handy to get a look at the many native birds these flowers attract.
