Pambula River Walking Track
This short walk begins at the mouth of Pambula River, with views over the bay to Haycock Point. The track winds through coastal eucalyptus forest with pockets of Cypress pine and cheery ballart and along the way information signs and lookouts highlight the river’s rich cultural history, and middens which date back 6000 years.
Look for a wide variety of wildlife, including white-bellied sea eagles on the hunt, dolphins and stingrays in the clear water, bats and yellow-bellied gliders. Pack a thermos and enjoy a break at the secluded inlet before retracing your steps.
Take a picnic to enjoy along the way, or on your return to the river mouth. Facilities include picnic tables, children’s play ground and toilets. Nearby Lions Beach has lots of free gas barbecues, picnic areas, sheltered tables, outdoor shower and toilets (and it’s dog friendly).
