Murrays Trail (Munyunga Waraga Dhugan)
Starting from the Murrays Beach Carpark off Jervis Bay Road, this walk takes you on a circuit in Booderee National Park via the Murrays Trail, visiting Murrays Beach and Governors Head lookout along the way. Explore the lively bushland of Booderee as you listen to the birdsong of many local birds. Wallabies are not uncommon to see in these lands as well, but the diversity of wildlife you can spot from Governors Head lookout is unmatched. From the fairy penguins of Bowen Island to whales, seals and dolphins in the ocean; you’re almost bound to come across something spectacular here. The track itself is also known as ‘Munyunga waraga dhugan’ which means ‘white-bellied sea eagle’s home camp’ in the Dhurga language. A (not-so) fun fact about the area is that former authorities decided to build a nuclear power station here in 1969, but changed their minds in 1971. Keep an eye out for the tide at all times. Let us begin by acknowledging the Koori people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
