Walking The Walk

Walking The Walk

A favourite family activity, walking gives everyone the chance to spend time
together in the open air, enjoying the landscape and exercise. Whatever your fitness
levels, you’ll find a great variety of walks in the Shoalhaven – something for
everyone.

HUSKISSON:
Wirreecoo Walking Trail & Mangrove Boardwalk
This walking trail is accessible from the Crown Reserve adjacent to
the Lady Denman Heritage Complex. There are two parts to the
walk, the Wirreecoo Walking trail can take up to one hour and the
Mangrove Boardwalk takes about 30 minutes.
The Lady Denman Heritage Complex houses the only wooden
Lady Class ferry left in NSW and was built in Huskisson. The museum
is open daily from 10am – 4pm, however, the walks are open to the
public at all times.
Jervis Bay National Park – Greenfields Beach walk
Two tracks from Greenfields Beach provide a 1–2 hour walk along
the coast and into the forest. The main track, White Sands Walk,
also extends north (outside the National Park) to Blenheim Beach
and Plantation Point. White Sands Walk (2km return) begins at the
boardwalk, crosses the creek and follows the coast. Interpretive
signs at the start and along the track highlight the importance of
the bay. To continue to Hyams Beach, take the steps at the end of
White Sands Walk, cross Duck Creek and walk through the forest
behind Hyams Beach to Aster Street. From here you can return via
Chinamans Beach, linking up with the track at Duck Creek

JERVIS BAY:
Booderee National Park
Located on the southern peninsular of Jervis Bay, Booderee is an
Aboriginal word from the local Dhurga language meaning ‘bay of
plenty’ or ‘plenty of fish’. The National Park and Botanic Garden
were handed back to the Wreck Bay Aboriginal Community in
1995. The National Park is full of spectacular scenery and a huge
array of animal and bird life may be spotted on the many walking
trails. For further information contact: Booderee Visitor Centre,

ST GEORGES BASIN:
The Basin Walking Track
This tranquil walk along the foreshore of St Georges Basin
(Paradise Beach to Palm Beach) is a popular short walk which
takes about 40 minutes each way. The beaches along the Basin
Walk are popular spots for swimming and fishing, or if you’re lucky
enough to have a boat, there is access for sailing and water skiing.
There are three track heads for the Basin Walk. Greville Avenue
leads to access points at Palm Beach Reserve and at Macleans
Point, while Walmer Avenue provides access to Paradise Beach
Reserve. Both reserves have carparking, picnic and toilet
facilities.
