Starting from the car park at the end of Badger Head Road, Badger Head, this walk takes you to Copper Cove. Follow a scenic track around the headland from the western end of Badger's Beach to a lovely secluded cove in Narawntapu National Park. You'll pass through coastal heathland with a variety of wildflowers and excellent views of Bass Strait and Little Badger Head. The track is well-formed and easy to follow, with some short hills and rough steps over undulating terrain. Shell middens and other artefacts can be found in the park, which is rich in Aboriginal heritage. The beaches in Narawntapu are popular for swimming and fishing, but they aren't patrolled and the ocean conditions can be unpredictable, so keep an eye out for currents and rips at all times. The exposed headland can be cold and windy, so it's advisable to bring warm clothing in case of sudden weather changes. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
