Aragunnu

Aragunnu is sacred to the people of Yuin Country, with one of the largest middens in Mimosa Rocks National Park.

It has a volcanic earth history, reflected in its boulder filled cove, rocky headland and sandy beach.

Learn some of its stories on the Mimosa Rocks Walking Track, a wheelchair accessible trail & boardwalk which crosses the midden on its way to a look out. Some of the boulders along the way are as a big as a child, and you’ll find visitors stack smaller rocky cairns on top. The track is well-defined and links two picnic areas before continuing another 250m on a paved path and boardwalk. When you reach the lookout, look for the pyramid shaped rock, beneath it lies the SS Mimosa, a paddle steamer shipwrecked in 1863 after which the park is named.

There are four distinct camping areas with fire places, but bookings are not available so it’s wise to have an alternative in mind during the busy summer season.

Aragunnu is also popular for surfing and fishing,
