Walking north to south, this is the final leg of our Solitary Islands Coastal Walk. We start by following the path through the reserve around Jetty Beach. Boambee beach is wide and flat, and easy walking at low tide. The airport is just over the dunes. The beach is popular as its off-leash for dogs, used by horses from the nearby stables, and open to 4WD vehicles.
We cross Boambee Creek on a structure hooked to the side of the railway bridge. Update September 2020: this pedestrian bridge is currently closed due to safety concerns. Review the NPWS website for alternative crossings and Council website for latest information.
Then we walk up over the grassy headland with good view south to Murrays Beach.?Sawtell is the final beach of the Solitary Island Coastal Walk, and before we climb Bonville Headland, where we can look south across Bongil Bongil NP toward Urunga, with Smokey Cape in the far distance.
