Working under the assumption that he was more scared of us than we were of him, we carefully and quietly tip-toed past him on the other side of the walking track before he slithered away in to the bush.

It is a great place to get a bird's eye view of this part of the National Park and to enjoy those incredible views of the rugged coastline. From September to November it is also a great vantage point to do some whale watching.
To get to the Wajurda Point Walking Track, turn off the Tathra - Bermagui Road at Nelson Lake Road. It is just over 2km from the turnoff to the car park for Wajurda Point.
Other places of interest nearby include Moon Bay and Nelson Beach and Lagoon.
