Yacaaba Walk


Beach Road Hawks Nest NSW 2324

6km return (3.5 hrs)

Walk from Bennetts Beach or Jimmys Beach to the top of Yacaaba Headland. Yacaaba rises 218m above sea level. It is recommended you wear comfortable shoes and take bottled water on your walk.

From the southern end of Bennetts Beach, the track climbs steeply and you’ll notice smooth barked angophoras giving way to gnarly banksias and grass trees. As the track veers north, take a break and admire the inspiring views up the coastline. On a clear day, the distant blue ridgeline of Barrington Tops is visible.

The track gets rockier and steeper, but along the forested ridge top you’ll be treated to coastal views of Seal Rocks and Tomaree Headland. Out to sea, Cabbage Tree Island, known as John Gould Nature Reserve, protects the only known breeding colony of one of the world’s rarest birds; the Gould’s petrel
