We’ve been amazed at how many people – and most were not young people – have not only walked the 31km Light to Light Walk, but continued on to walk well beyond this. We’ve recently provided transport for a couple from New Zealand who walked over 175km from Point Hicks in Victoria, via the Nadgee Nature Reserve, past Wonboyn Lake and joined the Light to Light Walk at Green Cape Light Station. They had a well deserved overnight at Green Cape, enjoying the luxury of a hot shower and comfy bed before continuing on towards their eventual pick up point at Boyd’s Tower.
The recently announced plans to extend the current 31km Light to Light Walk a further 8km to the Disaster Bay Lookout has the potential to entice people to take the next step – well, lots of steps! – onto the Nadgee. Whilst we rave about the spectacular coastline along the Light to Light Walk, the Nadgee Nature Walk encompasses an even greater diversity of coastal terrain.
You can walk the Light to Light Walk – and then you can just keep walking. This is Australia’s Coastal Wilderness – an untouched coastline, a wild and wonderful place.
To access the Nadgee Walk, you’ll need to enter via the Wonboyn Road (off Princes Highway), travel 8.7km, then turn into Old Bridge Forest Road (look for the Nadgee sign) and then onto Newtons Road which crosses the Merrica River and terminates in a carpark near the old Ranger’s Station. Vehicle access is prohibited from that point onwards.
For those who are not quite so keen, there is a lovely 8km return walk from the carpark to the mouth of the Merrica River.
So don’t just walk the Light to Light Walk. There are so many coastal walks in this Far South Coast region to explore. And each and every one is special in its own unique way.
