Getting There

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.

- Parking is available at Bennett's Beach or at the end of Beach Road - Toilets and picnic facilities can be found at Jimmys Beach reserve

2km beach run, moderate climb to half way then tough 500m climb to the summit. Excellent

We walked from the carpark to the start of the hill which was the longest park. The trail was good gets abit steep the last 500m to the top peak. The views were awesome. Bring swimmers to jump into the ocean after your finished to cool off

Long walk along a pretty beach. There’s a “viewing spot” (which was lovely) and then an extra 500m to the summit. The summit smelt strongly like urine and didn’t have incredible views. If I did it again, I don’t know if I’d bother with the summit.

This one is very good but a long walk along the beach before you start hiking up elevation

Absolutely breathtaking in both the sense of steep inclines and stunning views!
