About The Adventure
About the Walk: What a beautiful, coastal area this is! Our 6km walk starts with some beautiful forest scenery, visits an interesting memorial commemorating the Merchant Navy, and wanders past the scenic Norah Head lighthouse with its stunning coastline views. If we are in luck we will be able to see the humpbacks make their way along the beautiful coastline to the warm waters of Tropical North Queensland.
We take the steps down to the beach and explore the rock shelf below the lighthouse and walk along to Soldiers Beach, stopping here at the lookout hopefully spot some whales migrating up our beautiful coast. We'll make our way back to our starting point to share a delicious morning tea.
