Moderate track
Starting from the Narawntapu National Park carpark on Bakers Beach Road, Bakers Beach, this circuit walk takes you past Archers Knob and returns along the shoreline. From the visitor centre, this walk meanders through a paperbark swamp on a raised boardwalk to the Springlawn bird-hide, where you can spot many birds as well as wallabies and pademelons amongst the trees. Continuing along a well-constructed zig-zag track you'll reach Archers Knob, from where there are wonderful panoramic views of the beach, Springlawn and beyond. The track then descends to to the pristine sands of Bakers Beach, where you can enjoy the wonderful ocean views as you make your return. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
