Starting from Long Street this one-way walk will guide you through Iluka Nature Reserve. There's a 'Sensing the rainforest' area for children up to 6 years old along the way. Walk all the way to the Iluka Bluff Lookout for great views over the ocean and finish it off with a lunch at the Iluka Bluff picnic area. Let us begin by acknowledging the Gumbaingirr & Yaegl people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
