7. Murramarang Coastal Walk Extension
The new Murramarang Coastal Walk is a multi-day walking track that traverses some of the Australia's most stunning coastlines within existing National Parks and Wildlife Service areas. The aim of the tourism project was to extend this walk from Bawley Point to Narrawallee on Council owned and managed parcels of land. However, the Murramarang Walk by NPWS now starts/commences from Pretty Beach.
This project will be titled ‘Southern Headlands Walk’ from Narrawallee Headland to Blackburn Headland and will traverse and incorporate existing walks along the route. The walk will be extended to Bawley Point pending future funding opportunities.
Scope of planned works include:
