Abrahams Bosom Tracks


Ever since the first sailing ships began to travel the Australian east coast, their captains have referred to Beecroft Headland as Abrahams Bosom, an Old Testament reference to safety, as the area afforded shelter to vessels plying the coast in turbulent weather.

The beautiful Abrahams Bosom Tracks wind their way around Beecroft Headland near Currarong on the NSW South Coast.

A popular spot with locals and visitors alike, the 9km walk passes through coastal heath and sandstone cliffs with magnificent views up and down the coastline.

Accessible to people of all ages and fitness levels, dog owners and bicycle riders (no motor bikes or 4WDs), the track has several spots ideal for fishing, picnicking and snorkelling.

Only a 35 minute drive from Nowra, the reserve is regarded as one of the most unique areas in the Shoalhaven and is steeped in Aboriginal and European history.
