Dark Point Aboriginal Place near Hawks Nest is one of NSW best kept secrets! If you want to escape to a remote wilderness, and spend some time hiking along sand dunes, then this is where you need to head. If it was not for the ocean view, you could almost feel like you were in a desert.
Dark Point Aboriginal Place, which can be found in southern Myall Lakes National Park, offers scenic ocean views and is a terrific place to visit it. It is a culturally significant site for the Worimi people and when you visit you will understand why.
I was mesmerised by the beauty and vastness of this astonishing part of the NSW coast. Walking on sand dunes can be exhausting so be prepared for that as you take off on your adventure.
The rocky headland of Dark Point, north of Hawks Nest and in the southern area of Myall Lakes National Park, was declared an Aboriginal Site of significance in 2002. The Worimi people have been gathering here for over 4000 years in clans where they feasted on seafood.
Camping is available at Mungo Brush. For more information on parking and camping please visit National Parks NSW.
