The Myall Lakes National park features magnificent white sand surf beaches that are backed by the Myall River and its lakes. Start your exploration with this short beach and bush walk to Dark Point.

Little Gibber Head, to give Dark Point its more formal name, is volcanic in origin and extends seawards from the surf beaches. It has formed part of the local aboriginal people's ritual landscape for many thousands of years.

This walk utilises the beach and some of the many 4wd tracks that were created during the sand mining that took place locally in the 70's to take you to the Point along beautiful white sandy beaches and then through woodland full of tea tree, banksia and other native trees, teeming with birdlife.

The walk is fairly flat apart from some dune climbing and is never more than a few hundred metres from a metalled road, again another great introduction to the great Australian outdoors. On this walk we saw Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoos, Magpies, Bush Turkeys and early in the morning on the beach my first wild Dingo
