America Bay

New South Wales

A short walk with a great range of scenery, making it a great choice if you have only a short time in this National Park. This track one of two ways to access America Bay - the other is by boat. The track cuts straight through the bush from West Head Rd to pass historic Aboriginal engravings and a large cliff with a small waterfall, which also gives an impressive view of the bay. The well-formed track stops at a lookout over America Bay; there is a rough track down to the water.

The waterfall is very overrated, but the view of the bay was great.
