The 2.2 kilometre return Beachcomber Cove track starts from the northern end of the Cape Hillsborough picnic area and passes through open eucalypt forest and remnant rainforest with hoop pines, ferns and vines. The track ends at Beachcomber Cove, where walkers can enjoy pleasant views from a lookout on top of the ridge. At low tide, you can return to Cape Hillsborough picnic area along the beach. Near the picnic area, you can often see kangaroos on the beach in the late afternoon. At high tide, you will need to retrace your steps along the track. Check tide times before setting out and allow one and a half hours to complete this walk of a moderate grade.
