Palm Beach is on the left with the Pacific Ocean/Tasman Sea. On the right is Station Beach and Broken Bay. This is what is known as a Tombolo I love that word…it just rolls off the tongue, Tombolo, tombolo, tombolo…… (At least I amuse myself, if no-one else!) ;-)

There is a walkway down the middle of the bushland. It’s very sandy and difficult to walk along and very, very hot, sticky and airless on a summer’s day. If you’re going to walk to the lighthouse, the best way to go is along Station Beach, close to the water where the sand is hard packed and easier to walk on. You’ll then see signs closer to the headland that will direct you to one of two paths. One is very difficult and not for the faint hearted. It’s mostly steps and steep inclines. We went up this one and were huffing and puffing by the time we reached the top, but it was fun, in a masochistic kinda way. The second walkway is much wider and has a gentler slope. We took this on the way back down and found it tough going for some reason. We wished we had gone back down the harder way!

The tide was way, way out when I took these photos. You can see the exposed green sea weed along the shoreline of Station Beach.
