Boyds Tower to Saltwater Creek Walking Track

bigstock-Ben-Boyds-National-Park-96898865

This walking track is a fantastic slice of serenity on the Far South Coast.

The track is around 13.2km one way, taking around 4.5 hours or an afternoon to walk and it’s graded as easy.

The walk takes you past some truly scenic vistas. Experience the coastal breeze on a warm summer’s day and enjoy the stunning sunset at the end.

This is a small slice of the larger 30km Light to Light walk that stretches from Boyds Tower to Saltwater Creek.

You’ll see undulating coastal forest, sandy beaches, rocky bays, sheltered inlets and ocean lookouts.

There’s plenty of spots along the way to stop for picnics, swimming, fishing, or birdwatching. Flowers bloom in the woollybutt forest during spring. Whales frequent the area from late May to early December, making it a great time for whale watching.

The beautiful Leather Jacket Bay offers incredible red rocks coloured by iron oxide that provide wonderful photo opportunities as a contrast to the amazing depth of blue of the Pacific Ocean.

Choose to stay overnight at the remote campsite near Mowarry Point or the popular Saltwater Creek campground.

Like other remote and serene places on the Far South Coast it’s a good idea to put sunscreen on beforehand, bring a hat, bring water (as there are limited fresh water facilities) and if you plan to go off track bring a GPS or compass.

There’s also a great Light to Light app for Android and iPhone for checking out an audio tour of the route however be aware that there is limited mobile coverage in the park.
