Track Notes

Wattamolla Beach and Lagoon

The track quickly leads to a boat ramp that’s ideal for getting a kayak or canoe down to the lagoon. Keep following the boardwalk past some exposed rock and up and down several staircases. When you reach the fork follow the signs left for the beach or right for the lookout

Providential Point Lookout

The trail ascends here with several stone stairways and track that skirts the edges of the headland. The bay is visible on the left. The scrubland clears somewhat before you reach the lookout, but take the opportunity to admire some of the unique flora on display.

Picnic Area

After drinking your fill of the Pacific Ocean from the lookout, follow the path back until you reach another fork. Take the left path which leads inland letting you out near the picnic area and toilet blocks.
