Barren Grounds Nature Reserve – Escape From The City and The Heat

The Barren Grounds Nature Reserve is almost completely encircled in colourful rocky cliffs at the top of Jamberoo Pass. Barren Grounds is a huge bush area and offers a wealth of birdlife and unique plant species which you can discover on your walks.

You can choose from 6 to 20 km hikes in the bush with great breathtaking views. Plenty of opportunities – let your mode or your feet decide which will be the walk of the day  :-)

From Cooks Nose Point you are very close and opposite of the colourful rocky cliffs.

On the way to Cooks Nose Point we found these very small Venus Flytrap – only 1 – 2 cm in size. They grow everywhere on big stones at the ground.

After that short walk we joined the Griffiths walking track with several great lookouts that offer fine views of the coast. We done a 15 km bush walk – a great day!

This nature reserve is a little secret to tourists. When you do the walk you probably don’t meet any other hikers. A great day trip and place to escape from the busy towns or the heat at the beaches.
