A little bushwalking adventure

If you are keen to check out the Terranora Broadwater by foot, you can’t go past the incredible, accessible walk that takes you from Bilambil right around to Seagulls Club.

You can access the walk from the boat ramp on Peninsula Drive, or at the club end if you don’t fancy negotiating the super-steep drive down to the ramp. Parking is available at the rear of the club in the far right-hand corner of the parking area. Follow the path behind the fenced-off compound and the walk commences just past the Oyster Farm.

The flat, accessible walk around the Terranora Broadwater is a lovely way to spend family time in nature

A rainforest on your doorstep

The little known John Hogan Rain Forest is located just behind Bilambil Heights and has spectacular palm rainforest walks and picnic spots. The beautiful drive through the ancient and lush green landscape is worth the trip alone.
