Gunyah Beach track
The Gunyah Beach track (pg 70) is accessible only to 4WDs. In order to protect the fragile coastal vegetation a series of route markers have been established for 4WDs to follow. Access along Gunyah Beach is limited to 3km each side of where the track joins the beach. Beyond this are important seabird refuge and breeding areas.
Access to Talia Beach Headland from Walkers Rock Beach
There is an exclusion zone of at least 10km as part of the Lake Newland Conservation Park along the beach.
There have been countless number of vehicles pulled from the bog on the beach north of Lover’s Rock through to Talia. It is strongly advised not to proceed north of Lover’s Rock.
