Family Fun at Jervis Bay – The Wreck Walk from Abraham’s Bosom, Currarong

The Wreck Walk from Abraham’s Bosom in Currarong is a really easy 2.5km walk, very suitable for young children and even for parents with babies and toddlers in 4WD strollers.

Obviously, there’s much discussion of pirates, shipwrecks, buried treasure etc on a walk like this.

My friend and I, with our four twins, went on a wild and windy day. The waves were crashing on the beach with the remnants of the wreck, spray was flying through the air, too wet to even take a photo!

Currarong is just north of Jervis Bay, a gorgeous old fishing village.
Sign by bridge
Abraham’s Bosom is an excellent name for a beach! The walk starts at the carpark there.
kids on bridge
There’s something a little bit magical about starting a walk by walking over a long, wooden bridge. Look out for trolls popping up demanding to know: ‘Who’s trip-trapping over MY bridge?!’
Signs info
A little way up the track there’s lots of info to read.
And this map, to show you where to go. One day we’ll do the longer options, but it’s the short walk for today.

Love a well-sign posted track.
Lynds chat to kids
All sorts of games keep the kids occupied: who can find 10 stones? Who’s going to run ahead to hide?
Jamie runs on boardwalk
Great enthusiasm as we near Wreck Beach. (The wreck occurred in the 1920’s, a cargo/passenger ship, no lives lost.)
Kids run on track
Too windy!! The wreck itself is just a pile of twisted metal on the rocks, accessible at low tide but not this windy day.)
Kids and Lynds walk
The walk then goes along by the sea. You can pop down to other beaches.

Beautiful colour! But this really was a wild and windy day.
Picnicking in the carpark, our twins spotted these kookaburra quads and were delighted.
