Moderate track
This walk follows the Geebung Track to the sweeping views of Birdie Beach. From Campbell Dr, you will follow a management trail down to a creek where the Geebung Track narrows and winds through the heath to the top of the hill, where there is a view to Birdie Beach. The views south along Birdie Beach are good and extend over Bird Island to Norah Head. This walk is especially worthwhile in spring when the wildflowers are in bloom (although you will still see wildflowers for much of summer). Let us begin by acknowledging the Darkinjung & Guringai people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Track Notes
Turn by turn instructions & maps
Getting started
From Campbell Dr (800m east of the intersection with Blue Wren Dr), this walk heads south around the locked gate, though a clearing then follows the 'Coast Track' sign along the management trail. After about 350m, the management trail ends, and the walk crosses a small creek using a timber boardwalk. The walk heads up a series of timber steps (where the track is now lined with timber) and across a small clearing, then back through tall dense heath for about 200m. Here, the track is no longer lined with timber edging, but is still clear as it soon bends left and heads up the wide ridge through the low heath, with great district views behind. The track continues up the hill as Birdie Beach comes into view (on the right) and, just after a significant left-hand bend, the track comes to the top of the hill with a great view down Birdie Beach (now behind).....

Birdie Beach View
Birdie Beach View

Birdie Beach View is an informal lookout found on a sweeping bend along the Geebung Track, north of Birdie Beach. The view south over Red Ochre Beach and along Birdie Beach is fantastic. Norah Head can be seen in the distance, past Bird Island. Since the re-vegetation of the track to Birdie Beach Lookout this is the best point from which to enjoy the view. A great spot to enjoy the coast.
