This is a very short walk to a spectacular lookout. If you are in the area heading to Green Cape, then you really must stop off and soak up the view. Disaster Bay is named in memory of all the ships that have run aground in the region. On a sunny day, the views of the ocean, long beach and Nadgee Nature Reserve are remarkable – such a contrast to the memory of the lost ships and lives.

232 m

Hard track

The walk from Mowarry Point to Red Cliffs is an interesting trip through quite a few distinct vegetation types, with a few money shots of the coast line. The grass, heaths, and melaleuca along the way break up the walk to Red Cliffs, which are absolutely stunning. Spend time at the Red Cliffs to see all the different rock formations and inlets that have been created by erosion. Be mindful to keep a safe distance from the edge. The road to the start of this walk is 4wd track only.

This is a pleasant walk which wanders around the coast from Bittangabee Bay to the rocky Hegartys Bay. The walk is an excellent outing from Bittangabee Bay camping and picnic areas, and it passes a few good places for a swim. The walk is well marked and explores the coast north of Bittangabee Bay. The red coast at Hegartys bay is fantastic. If you want, there is a bush camp at Hegartys Bay, making this into an overnight walk.

This longer day walk starts near Boyd Tower and heads to Mowarry Point, meandering down the coast of Ben Boyd National Park. On the way there are plenty of picturesque coastline views, with the stark red rock forming a great contrast. Views of Boyd Tower and of the coastal rocks are common along the walk as it passes through Red Sands and Leather Jacket bays. Approaching Mowarry Point is an open grass land giving a perspective of how far you have walked (and need to walk back) from Boyd tower car park. A great way of exploring the first stage of the famous Light to Light walk in a day.
