Starting from the car park off the intersection of Beecroft Parade and Crookhaven Parade, Belmont, this walk takes you on a circuit around Abrahams Bosom Reserve via the Coomies Walk. This moderately easy loop winds its way around Abrahams Bosom Reserve on the Beecroft Peninsula, which forms the northern headland of Jervis Bay and is home to spectacular coastal scenery, passing several side trips to various points of interest along the way. The walk initially crosses a wooden footbridge over Abrahams Bosom Creek, then heads to Whale Point, where the 1928 shipwreck of the S.S. Merimbula is located. Leaving the wreck site, the walk passes Wilsons Beach and Lobster Bay, then continues to a cliff edge lookout near Mermaids Inlet. After passing a side trip to Beecroft Head, the walk heads past the Merimbula Trig Station, then crosses the creek again and passes an Aboriginal rock shelter before returning to the car park. Walkers should note that access to Gosangs Tunnel and Mermaids Inlet is closed to the public for safety reasons, and after heavy rains, sections of the trail can get very muddy. This loop consists of wide and narrow, gently undulating walking trails with uneven natural surfaces, compacted natural surfaces, boardwalk sections and rocky sections. It is suitable for average fitness levels. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
