Secrets of St. George's Head - Booderee Nat. Park

The crystal clear waters of Kittys Point

One of the bushwalks that was still on my list to do before we return to Canada was in Booderee National Park. 

St. George's Head is one of the more "remote" areas of Booderee and to find my way all along the bottom tip of the park - I needed to do a bit of walking...

The Headland Circuit Trail was the one I did today - but it ended up being longer than the 11 km - since I walked up and down to every lookout, beach or headland along the way. 

There was almost no one else on the trails. The park was quiet except for the sounds of nature!

Steamers Beach

There were many "bluebottles" washed up on shore - swimming might be a bit risky here!

It was a steep climb back up from the beach...well worth it to see that view though...

Brooks Lookout

Click the video below to hear the sounds of 7 Black Cockatoos that were in the trees overhead


St. Georges Head

I could just feel the power and overwhelming strength of the waves crashing in and pulling back out from shore...the awesome power of nature!

I could just see the outline of Pigeon House Mountain (the triangular-shaped rock it the middle) from the edge of the rocks across the water

Kittys Point

When I first walked out to this spot, there was 1 dolphin swimming on its own around the rock island (probably 30 feet in front of me). Very cool!

I climbed over the water to the rock island and had a sandwich - hoping to see that dolphin again!

Kittys Beach

Whiting Beach

Apparently, this was as far as I could walk down to the beach...

Blacks Waterhole

An incredible walk in an incredible place - 
Booderee has to be one of my favourite places to spend a day!


  1. Hi Neil, these photographs are beautiful. Great to hear you had such a good time at beautiful Booderee. We would love to use some of your images, with credit, if we may? Kind regards, Tanya, Parks Australia

    1. Hi Tanya, I got your email message but there is a problem sending you the photos (message send failure). Is there any other email address I could send them to?

  2. Absolutely Tanya! Do you have an email address where I can reach you to discuss. Send it to when you have a chance. Ta:)
