Summary

One of the must-do walks of Mallacoota, this trail showcases the wonderful waterway connecting the Bottom and Top Lakes of the Mallacoota Inlet in Croajingolong National Park.

Description

The Narrows walk in Croajingolong National Park is one of the most popular walks in Mallacoota.

The walk is 5km (2.5 each way) so allow 90 minutes. It can be accessed from Buckland's Jetty or you could even start 5km earlier in Mallacoota via the Lakeside walk if you want to keep going you can take this walk to Captains Creek Jetty or further.

The track is hardened gravel or compacted surface, and has a gentle hill section or some rocky sections. Parts of the track can get quite narrow with vegetation encroaching the path, so hiking boots are recommended.

A lot of the path come close to the water's edge, which is quite lovely.

Good to stop and look back towards the Bottom Lake and Mallacoota

6. Wildflowers

Even in January, there were some pretty, mostly pink, wildflowers to be found along the walk.

7. Boats

Depending on the time year, there always seems to be a boat or two around with people skiing, fishing or just putting along.

8. Narrow path

One of the spots where the path narrows (why its good to wear boots).

9. Top Lake

The Top Lake, like Bottom Lake, is part of Mallacoota Inlet. When you reach the viewing platform look down to see an Aboriginal shell Midden, but do not disturb it in anyway (see link).
