Located near Maroubra in Sydney, the eastern section of Malabar Headland National Park is open to visitors. However the park does close when ANZAC Rifle Range is in use so check safety messages and alerts before visiting. The western section will remain closed until the completion of the Western Escarpment walking track in late 2017.
Dramatic cliff top views and rugged bushland make Malabar Headland National Park a popular spot for coast walks and fishing. Keep an eye out for humpbacks cruising the Pacific Ocean during whale watching season too.
Tucked between public beaches and parks, the natural landscape is dominated by towering cliffs, sandstone escarpments and remnant heritage structures. Get away from the urban crowds and discover expansive views all the way north to Bondi and south to La Perouse.
If you’re looking to cool off in summer you’ll find popular swimming spots nearby, with Maroubra Beach and Malabar Beach located at the beginning and end of Boora Point walking track. And nature lovers will find several species of wildlife and protected vegetation, including the critically endangered eastern suburbs banksia scrub.
There are no facilities within the national park boundary. Toilets, bins and dog walking areas are located nearby at the council-managed Pioneers Park and Arthur Byrne Reserve.
