Admirals Bosom Reserve
Admirals Bosom Reserve is at Currarong, and has a variety of walks of different distances and difficulty. It is situated on the headland which separates the ocean from the bay, making for some truly spectacular views.
Information About This Walk
There are 2 car parks nearby, with a toilet block at one of the car parks. There are no refreshments in the reserve, or bins, so take water with you and please take your rubbish away.
The walk isn't suitable for prams, and I'd recommend wearing closed toe shoes with grip. This is our favourite walk in Jervis Bay, there is plenty for the dogs to sniff, great views, oppportunities for the more adventurous to go "off piste" (not off leash) and if you follow Coomies Walk and take all the little detours, it's likely to take you around 3 - 4 hours.
We have picked up paralysis ticks in the reserve, so check your dogs thoroughly after visiting, and make sure you are up to date with tick prevention.
If you go after some periods of heavy rain, parts of the walk will be muddy and there will be puddles to walk through or try to dodge - easier said than done in some places.
If you decide to take the Wreck Walk path, you will have the opportunity to walk on rock tables if the tide is low at Whale Point. The path is called Wreck Walk because the SS Merimbula was wrecked here in 1928.This is the shortest of the walks on offer, and is perfect if you have senior dogs or mini humans.
If you continue on, the next beach is Wilsons Beach. This is a small beach, fairly accessible and close to the car park.
If you choose to ignore Wreck Walk, you can walk along Marions Way to reach Honeysuckle Point, which is signposted from the main path.
Lobster Bay - the path is narrow to the beach.
Continuing on along Coomies Walk, you will reach the path to
Mermaid Inlet and Gosangs TunnelWe are able to access both of these areas with our dogs, but they are tricky to navigate, so if your dog isn't particularly well behaved, I wouldn't advise it. Gosangs Tunnel is a 15m crawl through to the other side, where you are rewarded with ocean views. It was very overcast on the day we took these photos.
