The walk is divided into 3 sections and a booking is required to camp in each one. To protect the natural environment, hikers must not camp in one location within each section for more than two consecutive nights. Hikers must make every attempt to only stay in one section for a maximum of three nights. Permits for the Wilderness Coast Walk to the east of Mallacoota are obtained from NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service office at Merimbula. Click here for more information or call (02) 6495 5000.

CAUTION: Walkers should be well equipped, experienced and confident in navigating from topographic maps before attempting the walk.
