Birdwatching at Abraham's Bosom

Vegetation Types - coastal heath, beaches, woodland, sandstone cliffs

Grade and Distance: - Coomies Walk - 9km (3-4hr) - medium grade; Wreck Walk - 2.5km return (1.5hr) - easy grade, undulating terrain, little shade and path can be boggy after rain

What to look for:
Endangered Eastern Bristlebirds and Southern Emu-wrens are a possibility in the heathland and there have been rare sightings of Regent Honeyeaters in the area. Many species of honeyeaters can be found in the heath, including Scarlet, White-cheeked, New Holland, Tawny-crowned and White-eared Honeyeaters, plus the larger Little and Red Wattlebirds. You may see Sooty Oystercatcher, Eastern Reef Egret and Ruddy Turnstone on the rock platforms, and White-bellied Sea-Eagles from the cliffs.

Head to Currarong and follow the coast road to Beecroft Parade to the Abrahams Bosom carpark and picnic area at the reserve’s entrance. There are two walks at the reserve, both accessed over the bridge from the carpark. Wreck Walk continues along the coast and Coomies Walk turns right onto the headland past a number of features such as Gosangs tunnel and Merimbula Trig
