Soak up the serenity of Dock Inlet, a unique land locked expanse of fresh water isolated from the coast by a coastal dune barrier. The inlet is fed by the east and west branches of Dock Creek from a pristine catchment. The shallow tannin coloured waters support a diverse range of waterfowl.
Keep an eye out for White-bellied Sea Eagles that are often seen in the area.
Walking to Dock Inlet
(14 km, 5 - 6 hours return from the Yeerung River)

Follow the posts set in the dunes from the beach or signs on the Powerline Track. This walk can also be a return walk via the Powerline Track and the Yeerung River.
