Length: 3.7 mi • Est. 1 h 58 m
Yacaaba Headland Walk begins at the Jimmy Beach Reserve Carpark at the end of Beach Road. The first 1.5km is along Bennett's beach before reaching the base of Mount Yacaaba. The track up Mount Yacaaba is a hard and rocky walk which has fantastic views over the Myall Lakes National Park just north of Port Stephens. Please note the rocks on the tracks to the summit can be slippery. The track is not signed but as it is well traffic the path is very visible. At the bottom Mount Yacaaba, the track is sandy and as you hike up it gradually becomes more rocky. Show more
