Barunga Point marks the beginning of the next section of Eurobodalla National Park, which continues 2 km south to Bogola Head, then 3 km to the mouth of Corunna Lake. In between are five, difficult to access, exposed, rip-dominated beaches (NSW 605-609). The only access is a vehicle track out to Bogola Head, with foot access to the beaches north and south along national park walking tracks. Beach NSW 605 is a curving 230 m long pocket of sand, located 300 m south of Barunga Point. A small rocky point forms its southern boundary, together with rocks reefs extending up to 250 m off both ends. Waves average 1-1.5 m and usually maintain a rip flowing out though a break in the reefs towards the southern rocks. It is backed by low bluffs and cleared land.

Swimming

All five beaches are isolated and potentially hazardous with persistent rips and rocky sections.

Surfing

The northern two are small and rock-dominated while there are numerous beach breaks along Fuller and Loader.

Fishing

The central and accessible Bogola Head is the most popular location, with many gutters in the jagged rocks, as well as along the rip-dominated beaches.
