  1. I have climbed Tomaree Mountain many times and never fail to be amazed at the view, its such an amazing feeling to push yourself and feel the reward when you get to the top.. I Love to take a picnic ( a light one ) and enjoy it at the top, or have a bbq on the beach at Shoal Bay on my return!! A well earned meal!! Love it!! Did you know a photo of the section of coast where the entry to the Tomaree Summit walk is, was used on a Powderfinger album!!

  2. Last summer I did the walk across the Fingal Bay spit to the Fingal Lighthouse… WOW what an amazing walk! and on our return we had a swim at the little beach just before you hit the island… it was amazing, felt like I was on a deserted island in a movie or something!! Will definatley be doing that again this summer!!!

    1. It’s a great walk isn’t it. Just be careful of the tides as you can get cut off if you time it wrong – always check with a reputable source so you have accurate tide information. You don’t want to spend an unplanned night on the island!!

      Did you know that Fingal Spit was where Lara Bingle filmed the now famous “Where the Bloody Hell are you” Ad. Check it out here.
