Pinnacles & Long Beach
Long Beach has a magnificent backdrop, the 65 million year old Pinnacles. In winter it’s a popular salmon fishing spot, while the flathead like to bite in the warmer months.
Long Beach is exposed and unpatrolled.
From the car park you can head straight to the beach (700m return, with steps), or take the Pinnacles Loop Walk. The walk offers a bird’s eye view of the Pinnacles, its white sands mark the level of an ancient water table, while the red gravel clay above is actually rust (iron oxide). There are two lookouts with views south to Lennards Island and north to Haycock Point, both which are in the northern section of Ben Boyd National Park.
From Pambula travel south for 10km along Princes Highway (from Eden it is 8km north).
Turn onto Haycock Road (unsealed) and travel 1km, then turn right at Pinnacles Road.
