Walks & Swimming

There are numerous beautiful walks close by or within an hours drive from Sealords. You can walk to some of these directly from Sealords like the Cutten Brothers trail that starts at the Jetty or Bicton Hill trail which starts at the seaside road further round in the Clump Mountain National Park, or just walk along the scenic 1.6km long Narragon Beach across the road. Always take a small insect repelant spray with you (there is one in your room).

The quality of the trails are normally excellent.They include rainforest, lookouts, mountains, creeks, waterfalls, swimming holes, sandy beaches and any combination, taking from half an hour to a few hours.
