We begin the trip meeting at Merry Beach in Kioloa. The trail quickly turns from a beach stroll into a trail headland hike up and around Snapper Headland before reaching Pretty Beach, a perfect place for photos as the views are stunning.

Say good-bye to your mobile phone reception; you won t be able to text anyone from here onwards. From Pretty Beach it gets "prettier!".

With so much trail goodness, from and paths to rocky plateaus and the stunning beachside, the hike has enough awww moments to satisfy you inner wild woman .

On the trail you ll have views all the way down to North Durras and Grasshopper Island. To the west you ll see Durras Mountain, which we pass below before reaching camp.

The coastal environment is perfect for spotting wildlife from whales, dolphins, sea eagles and goannas. Along the way we stop for our famous healthy morning tea and another break for lunch before reaching camp. A 3.3 hour hike with plenty of rest, swims and photo opportunities.

Quiet bush campsites can be hard to find, but Pebbly Beach is the perfect spot. Firstly, the beach is stunning. Camp also has flushing toilets, cold showers and cooking facilities. You can also enjoy an afternoon spread on the flat grass with a glass of wine and kangaroos by your side.

Did we mention your tents are set up for you. All ready for a great night to toast marshmallows by the fire and sleep under the stars.

Sunday Hike:

  • Hike Plan: Pebbly Beach - Snake Bay - Pretty Beach - Kioloa
  • Distance: 12km return hike
  • Meals: Breakfast, lunch, snacks

We wake early for a coffee/tea and watch the sunrise from the beach (if you choose) or sleep and wake when you're ready to the sound on birds.

After breakfast we pull down our tents and prepare for the journey back.

Our route back will take us back via the way we came with a complete different perspective of the coast.

Placing one foot in front of the other, we eventually reach our cars to unpack and reflect over the weekend and laughter hiking and camping together.
