Description
Waypoints (0)

A short walk to a very beautiful (but busy) beach and lookout at Governors Head with great views across to Bowen Island, followed by an extended loop along Murrays Trail. Access is well-marked from the car park. If you want to detour down to the beach or follow the the coastline around off-trail, note that some rock scrambling required especially at high tide and may be impassable.

A great walk with the opportunity to view little penguins, bring your binoculars! Check the tide, as at high tide the walk back along the beach will have you very wet!

A nice easy walk with beautiful beach and views. Part of a larger walk that encompasses a greater, more diverse area of Governors Head including Hole in the Wall beach.

First to Review

A very beautiful beach - but expect a few people here in summer. The short walk to Governors Head is worth the effort, for some nice views. Hard to imagine this was the site of a proposed nuclear power station! https://hikingtheworld.blog/2018/01/17/murrays-beach-and-governor-head-jervis-bay/
