Bingie Dreaming Track
The Bingie Dreaming Track follows part of the dreaming track used by the Brinja-Yuin people. It has some great vantage points for whale watching and passes through a variety of plant communities from eucalyptus forests to heath lands. In spring wildflowers are at their colourful best and bird enthusiasts will be well rewarded with a variety of species at any time of the year. This coastal walk includes some sections along sandy beaches.
Highlights are the spectacular views of beaches, headlands and islands and the shades of ochre and rust in the rocks around Bingie Headland. Plenty of picturesque and secluded places to stop and swim. A well-deserved end point for refreshments are the cafes and restaurants along Nelson Parade, Tuross Head. Take a map or pick up the Bingie Dreaming Track brochure from Batemans Bay or Narooma Visitor Centres. Be aware the inland track can become overgrown at times. For a shorter walk you may wish to start or turn around at Meringo or do a car shuffle at either end.
Length: 16km one way (do a car shuffle) from Congo to cafes at Tuross Head, or 8km one way and 16km return from Congo Headland to Bingie Bingie Point.
Time: 6 hours including a few breaks
Access: Congo Headland, east of Moruya. Heading south from Moruya on the Princes Highway, take the South Head Road turnoff left at the roundabout and then turn right onto Congo Road and continue to the headland.
