From the car park, this walk heads between the trees at the point where three short vertical logs mark the track. The track heads down through the bush to the base of a set of stairs.
Continue straight: From the intersection, the walk heads up the stairs and over the dune, then down the timber beach steps on the other side. Across the dunes, the walk comes to Bournda Beach.

Bournda Beach Alt = 4 m
Bournda Beach, Bournda National Park, lies between Tathra and Merimbula, and forms the southern end of Wallagoot Beach. The beach provides some good surf conditions with a south-easterly aspect (not patrolled). At the southern end of the beach is Bournda Island, attached to the beach by a rocky headland and tombola (sand joining the island to mainland). The dunes backing the beach are undergoing rehabilitation. Bournda Beach is accessed by Bournda Rd at either Hobart Beach camping area, Bournda Lagoon or Wallagoot Gap parking areas.
