Introducing Murramarang National Park
This beautiful 12,386-hectare coastal park begins just above Batemans Bay and extends to within 20km of Ulladulla. If you haven’t seen a kangaroo in the wild yet, here’s your chance. At dawn and dusk large numbers of them wander out of the eucalypt- and rainforests to the edges of lovely Durras Lake, while colourful parrots fill the trees.
Wasp Head, Depot, Pebbly and Merry Beaches are all popular with surfers and Myrtle Beach with nudists. We’re not sure where nude surfers go. There are numerous walking trails snaking off from these beaches and a steep but enjoyable walk up Durras Mountain (283m).
At the north of the park, Murramarang Aboriginal Area encompasses the largest midden on the South Coast, its remains suggesting 12,000 years of continual occupation. A self-guided walking track has been laid out with interpretive displays.
