Ever since the first sailing ships began to travel the Australian east coast, their captains have referred to Beecroft Headland as Abrahams Bosom, an Old Testament reference to safety, as the area afforded shelter to vessels plying the coast in turbulent weather.
The beautiful Abrahams Bosom Walking Track winds its way around Beecroft Headland near Currarong on the NSW South Coast.
A popular spot with locals and visitors alike, the 9km walk passes through coastal heath and sandstone cliffs with magnificent views up and down the coastline.
Accessible to people of all ages and fitness levels, dog owners and bicycle riders (no motor bikes or 4WDs), the track has several spots ideal for fishing, picnicking and snorkelling.
The Beecroft Peninsula is home to the Department of Defence training area, but also has some spectacular landmarks and beaches and fishing spots.
Point Perpendicular Lighthouse located atop the sheer cliffs of the Beecroft Peninsula, Point Perpenducular lighthouse is 75 metres above the ocean with expansive views across Jervis bay and an ideal vantage point to watch the whale migration between May and November.

Drive through natural scrub and beautiful spring wildflowers to point perpendicular Lighthouse, and the spectacular escarpment at Jervis Bay. The gravel road can get a little rough after rain but it is well worth the drive.

It has now been replaced by a new lighthouse, but the building remains and is of historic significance. There is no entry into the Lighthouse itself but the view from the Lighthouse is spectacular.
