Tuross Heads Things to Do

    The beauty all, looking north from One Tree

    by iandsmith Updated May 13, 2005

    Just down from my friend's place is a lovely walk along the headlands or the beach if you prefer. From his end you walk 1.5kms south and end up at One Tree Heads from where you can look further south to popular surfing locations in the area such as Potato Point. To reach Potato Point you have to go back to the highway, drive through Bodalla and turn east 9 km off the highway along Bodalla Road. Just north of Potato is Blackfellows Point, (somewhat politically incorrect these days) where there is a caravan park.
    One Tree Head was rather obviously named but the original graceful pine was vandalized, as was its replacement. However, the third tree is now protected by a reasonably substantial barrier and the vandals have apparently discovered there may be more to life. The 200 other Norfolk pines in the town were planted by a certain Hector McWilliam after being told they would not grow in the area. McWilliam, a one-time real estate salesman, acquired the Mylott property in 1924, attempting, with little success, to sell land in the area and make it a tourist spot. Oh that he owned the land these days! His fortune would be made! His name is commemorated on a cairn in the reserve above the beach.

    When you're driving south from Tuross on the Princes Highway (though I fail to understand what prince would want to put his name on this strip of bitumen, which is probably why none has!) you will notice this delightful little edifice which is the 19th century All Saints Anglican Church at Bodalla, an area noted for its dairy production.
    Thomas Sutcliffe and Theresa Shepherd Mort were the driving forces behind it and it was completed in 1881.

    Further south again are Dalmeny and Kianga, popular with board-riders, body-surfers and snorkellers. Fishing is also popular at Lake Mummaga, Lake Brou and Lake Tarourga to the south, Borang Lake to the north, and Bumbo Lake to the north-west
