Coastal Traverse

National Parks and Reserves

Coastal Traverse is a walk in Narawntapu National Park.

7 to 9 hours, 21 km one way. Grade 3.

A stunning coastal traverse of the park is possible between Bakers Beach and Greens Beach, walking in either direction. Walking from west to east, follow the Archers Knob walk to Bakers Beach, head east along Bakers Beach following the directions for the Badger Head walk. From Badger Head follow Badger Beach towards West Head. A short detour to the top of West Head leads to a lookout atop the cliffs, this is recommended for magnificent panoramic coastal views. Follow the cliff-top track around West Head all the way to Greens Beach.

A full day is required to complete this walk. Be prepared and organise a car at the other end of the trail to return. Alternatively, the walk can be broken into small sections with car access at Bakers Beach, Badger Head, West Head and Greens Beach. Take your time and enjoy the magnificent coastal scenery, swimming and fishing spots along the way.
