Munyunga waraga dhugan (loop walk) - 'White-bellied sea eagle's home camp'
The Munyunga waraga dhugan loop walk is an ideal starting point for you to experience Booderee. ‘Munyunga waraga dhugan’ means ‘white-bellied sea eagle's home camp’ in the Dhurga language of the Wreck Bay Aboriginal people. The walk is a self-guided tour of Booderee’s plants, animals, culture and history told through the 14 signs you’ll discover along the way. Take in panoramic views of Jervis Bay, from Governor Head check out the park’s sea birds, penguins, seals, dolphins and whales. If you start early in the morning you might catch a glimpse of the endangered eastern bristlebird. Keep your ears open for a variety of our other wildlife - birds, frogs and animals. Please stay on the marked trail. Moderate Grade.
