Diamond Head loop walk is the ideal introduction to the splendour of Crowdy Bay National Park. Starting at Diamond Head campground, you'll link up with Headland walking track and Forest walking track for a walk packed with visual delights, which highlights why this park is a national treasure.
Passing through heath and forests of paperbark and swamp mahogany, pause to take in the exceptional views at Kylie’s lookout and scan the waters for dolphins. It's thought that Diamond Head draws its name from the quartz crystals in the cliffs and you might see them sparkling in the sunlight.
The headland rises dramatically and offers panoramic views across Crowdy Bay, north to Perpendicular Point and south to Crowdy Head. In between are superb sweeps of golden sand, and rising out of the lush forested hinterland, behind you, are the majestic Three Brothers mountains.

Very nice walk.. We went for a walk on a nice sunny day and it turned out to be one of our best walks.. 4.5km loop and we absolutely loved it.. got a bit of Sun-tanned , but it was worth it… it’s easy and anyone with little bit walking experience should be able to do it..

This great walking loop with amazing scenery consists of two seperate paths as you’ll see on the map. My watch calculated 4.5km with an elevation gain of 194m. Took me about an hour to finish. The coastal side is far more interesting so I recommended doing that first. The forest walk is fairly shady so you can cool down a bit on the way back.

Half of the track is along the cliff breath taking view but has very little shelter from the wind or sun. The other half is through the fire damaged forest.

This was an awesome walk, with lovely scenery and a nice clear path! If you're planning on going on this walk, make sure you wear sunscreen and bring some water.

Great 2 hourish walk. If you are lucky you might spot some dolphins or whales.
