Fingal Picnic Area to Gunnamatta Beach

We met our friends for a walk on the Boxing day. This time we decided to organise a car shuffle. Our choice was nice walking trail near Cape Schanck.

We met at the Fingal Picnic Area and brought one car to the Gunnamatta Beach.

It was a warm and sunny day. The trail was narrow and overgrown a bit.

Soon we reached the first lookout with fabulous ocean views.

Rugged coastline
Dense coastal woodland

We could see our destination from the next lookout:

Gunnamatta beach in the distance
The Coast Walk

Eventually we reached Gunnamatta Beach.

It was high tide but we managed to pass one narrow space without getting wet.

We walked on the beach for about 1.5 km.

The only picnic table near the Surf Life Saving Club was exposed to the sun so we returned to Fingal Picnic Area and had lunch there.

It’s a great easy walk. We walked 6.1 km total. It would be great to do the longer Cape Schanck to Gunnamatta Beach walk later.
