Head to Currarong and follow the coast road to Beecroft Parade to the Abrahams Bosom carpark and picnic area at the reserve's entrance. There are two walks at the reserve, both accessed over the bridge from the carpark. Wreck Walk continues along the coast and Coomies Walk turns right onto the headland past a number of features such as Gosangs tunnel and Merimbula Trig
