Starting from North Head Camping Area in Murramarang National Park, this walk takes you through the forest to Honeysuckle Beach for a swim. Have a picnic at Honeysuckle Bay Day Use Area before heading back. Let us begin by acknowledging the Yuin people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
