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

Length: 9.2 mi
This is a kayak trip from the campground at Violet Hill up Bolambyte Creek, till it gets difficult to pass the tree branches, and then back. Unlike a lot of creeks around, there are numerous spots to stop for a stretch. The Myall lakes are ideal for touring and camping out of your kayak. A moderate paddler could complete this trip in half a day but it is suitable for beginners and canoes to complete in a full day. The lakes are part of the Myall Lakes National Parks which is a Ramsar wetland of international significance. There are therefore plenty of native wildlife to be seen including, kangaroos, sea eagles, whistling kites, goannas and dingoes. You are very likely to see many of these if you take your time and look around!Show more
