Kabbijgup Beach

We came upon the carpark that lay just above Kabbijgup Beach shortly after. The carpark had a small shed off to the side that functioned as a toilet and a wooden walkway that descended down to the beach. Kabbijgup Beach is a popular spot for surfers and is also known as the Three Bears, so named because of the three adjacent breaks - called Mummy, Daddy and Baby Bear. We descended the wooden walkway and passed a bunch of surfers frolicking in their element with big smiles on their faces. The beach walk was a brief one and ended (6.22km mark from the start) after about 400m where a sign post signalled us to begin the ascent from the beach back up to the track once again.

As I watched a pod of common bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) play in the surf down below, the trail began to head inland once again and the heath gradually become taller, with more and more trees emerging. A part of me began to rejoice realising that we would be walking in shade, protected from the harsh sun but not too soon after we spotted the first of two picnic tables for Camp Duckworth. Only after walking into the campsite did it dawn on me that the hike for the day had just ended.
