Experience the hidden wonders at this Reserve
One of the most spectacular and amazing hidden gems that many of us do not know exists is Warden Head Reserve, which is situated in the depths of the Far South Coast of New South Wales in the picturesque marina town of Ulladulla.

With a drive of approximately three hours and half from Sydney, this natural wonderland lays with an abundance of activities for all interests to enjoy.

There are easy bushwalks, whale watching and birdwatching, water activities, cultural experiences and many lookouts that will steal your breath away.

We spotted the magnificent giants of the sea during migration season...

The Coome Nujunga Track is a cultural walk which displays Aboriginal sign posting that bears lizard paintings which follows to a lovely bush trail as well as various points where viewing platforms can be found and breathtaking views are welcomed.

Views of the Warden Head Lighthouse can be seen on the picturesque Coomee Nulunga walk...

Rock formations can be also seen on this track as well an abundance of birdlife and plants with a number of Aboriginal paintings along the track too, which gives you an inside look into the Aboriginal culture.

There are two other easy walking tracks that take you through coastlines, beaches and many lookouts. The walks vary on time depending on which loop track you take and how long you spend exploring.

The Warden Head Lighthouse was built in 1873 and was originally located on the Ulladulla breakwater and was relocated in 1889 to its current location, where today we are able to witness stunning panoramic views from the Lighthouse including dolphin watching and whale watching during migration season.

The Warden Head Lighthouse...

If you are a history buff you will indeed be intrigued with the Lighthouse, as it is one of the only two in New South Wales to be made from wrought iron!

Some of the walks lead to beaches, where an array of water activities can be enjoyed from fishing to swimming as well as lovely beach strolls.

Birdwatching enthusiasts will love the abundance of bird life found in the region...

Warden Head Reserve is home to many birds including a pair of endangered Hooded Plovers, where less than fifty remain left in New South Wales- so do keep an eye out for them!

The lovely coastline can be seen from The Bommie walk...

It is hard to leave a place like this, where breathtaking views linger in your mind for a long time, the aromas of the sea and nature surround your senses as well as the many activities to undertake. Warden Head Reserve surely does make you want to come back over and over again.

Warden Head Reserve is certainly one natural outdoor experience that the whole family can enjoy, you cannot help but spend the day here exploring the wonders as well as admiring the beauty...

There is a carpark near the Lighthouse.
