An absolutely perfect day for this beautiful walk.  There were 15 walkers including a couple not seen for a while and also including a visitor.

Starting at the Maloneys Beach barbecue site the group moved off along the back of local houses and then into the track at the Murramarang National Park sign which led to the locked gate at a track intersection.  Instead of going through the gate, the path then followed led straight ahead down to a severely eroded watercourse hole and through attractive bushland for some distance and finally arriving at the headland north from Reef Point and Acheron Ledge.  After admiring the wonderful views from this high vantage point we returned to a track which led down to the secluded beach and a perfect lunch location.  This beach has no name on the map but is the cove next north to Reef Point.
After lunch the group walked the beach and returned to the bush track upwards at Reef Point and along the clifftop back to the locked gate and a return to the carpark at the Maloneys  Beach barbecue.
This was indeed a perfect easy walk enjoyed by one and all.
