Itinerary
Select day below to view the itinerary information.

Day 1 - Boyd Tower to Saltwater Creek - 13km walk

Your adventure begins in the morning, when we pick you up from your accomodation and transfers you to the (soon to be re-named) Ben Boyd National Park.  We’ll drive to the start of the light to light walk, Boyds Tower, a large sandstone tower on the Southern head of Twofold Bay. Built in 1847 and originally designed as a lighthouse that stands 18.9m tall, although it was never used as a lighthouse, instead used for whale spotting and gave Boyd a strong advantage over other whalers in the area. 

From Boyd Tower we’ll walk 13km through to Saltwater Creek stopping for a gourmet picnic lunch along the way. We’ll pass by natural features such as Red sands bay, a rocky bay made up of small boulders and fine red gravel that makes a fantastic contrast on sunny days. We’ll have a rest stop in the grassy shaded area back from Leather Jacket Bay. We’ll continue onto Mowarry Beach, a favourite swimming location for those brave enough to take a dip. We’ll admire the red coastal cliffs before entering into Saltwater Creek beach, a beautiful white sandy beach with sapphire coloured water. Our transportation to Green Cape lighthouse, our accomodation for the next two nights will meet us here. 

Perched on the edge of a peninsula are beautifully restored cottages and the Green Cape Lighthouse. Each cottage offers a comfortable verandah, ideal for enjoying the sea air and whale watching in the right season, large bedrooms and heated lounge rooms and shared bathroom facilities. 

In the late afternoon we’ll be taken on a NSW National Parks guided tour of the lighthouse where we’ll have the opportunity to walk up the 116 stairs (the tallest lighthouse in NSW) to the top with a 360-degree view of Disaster Bay, the cottages and Ben Boyd National Park. Green Cape lighthouse is steeped in seafaring history and we’ll be taken on a journey to discover the heritage architecture, learn about the disasters and survival of numerous shipwrecks. 

Tonight, relax in the lounge room with a hot drink in hand, watch the mesmerising ocean on the verandah or if you’re feeling active take a walk around the premises and look out for the resident wombats and other wildlife, the choice is yours. Your guide will prepare you a stunning chef cooked, gourmet, hearty meal for you to enjoy before you tuck in for the evening.

Accommodation: Green Cape Lighthouse 

Included activities: Davidson Whaling station tour & guided 13km walk along light to light walk 

Meals: Lunch, afternoon tea and dinner

Drinks: A selection of non-alcoholic drinks and a responsible amount of beer & wine (1 to 2 glasses per/person) are included; if you would like more please BYO. 

Day 2 - Satlwater Creek to Bittangabee Bay - 9 km walk

Wake up to the sunrise over the ocean at Green Cape Lighthouse, no matter what the weather, it’s a spectacular scene. Help yourself to a hot drink on the front verandah and soon your guide will have a hearty breakfast prepared for you. If you go for a morning stroll you might be lucky enough to spot wombats or the endangered southern brown bandicoot and for our bird lovers, over 150 species of birds have been recorded in Ben Boyd National Park. The place is brimming with wildlife and wild scenes. 

You’ll be transferred back to Saltwater Creek to walk the 9km to Bittangabee Bay today stopping for a gourmet picnic lunch along the way. You’ll pass by Hegarty’s Bay and the Black cliffs. We’ll stop to take a look at the Imlay house ruins and Bittangabee Storehouse ruins. Perhaps a dip in the ocean at Bittangabee Bay will be called for before your transfer back to Green Cape Lighthouse for your final night stay. 

Enjoy a hot (or cold) beverage on the veranda and watch the colours in the evening sky change, at dusk take a wonder around the lighthouse and nearby bush to see if you can spot some of the nocturnal mammals coming out to play. We’ll enjoy our last hearty evening meal together, likely around the fire place and share stories of adventures past and present. 

Accommodation: Green Cape Lighthouse 

Included activities: Guided walking

Meals: Breakfast, lunch & dinner 

Drinks: A selection of non-alcoholic drinks and a responsible amount of beer & wine (1 to 2 glasses per/person) are included; if you would like more please BYO.

Day 3 - Green Cape Light House to Bittangabee Bay and Davidson Whaling Station - 8km walk

Enjoy your last morning at Green Cape Light house, we’ll have a relaxed start before tackling the final section of the light to light walk. As you sit and enjoy a hot drink on the verandah keep an eye out for White-bellied sea eagles spring past at eye level. 

Once we check out of our accomodation, Green Cape Light house you’ll walk the remaining 8km to Bittangabee Bay. The walk follows a route that has been travelled by light keepers over many years. Originally, supplies for the lighthouse were off-loaded at Bittangabee Bay and transferred by horse-drawn tram to Green Cape Lighthouse. Rare ground parrots and striated field wrens are sometimes seen along the track and in the spring the area blooms with wild flowers.  

Before heading home or to your accomodation we’ll make a stop at Davidson Walking station to learn about the whaling operations in the area. 

You’ll feel a great sense of achievement at the end of the walk, it truely is one of the greatest and most scenic walks in Australia. 

This afternoon our guides will drop off you at your accomodation in the Bega Valley Shire. 

Included activities: Guided walking & transfers within the Bega Valley Shire

Meals: Breakfast & lunch
