The Hanging Rock, Catalina Recreation Sports Reserve incorporates
the Batemans Bay Skate Park/Ramp.
The recreation fields are used for cricket, Australian rules football, rugby and other sports. Also here is the basketball stadium, local library, University, tennis courts and hire.
Just further down the road towards the water is a boat ramp with parking and fishing areas and Corrigans Beach.
You could hire a bike and ride (or walk) to Batehaven/Batemans Bay from Hanging Rock.
A map is shown at the end of this page.
From this Recreation Reserve you could walk to the water, along Corrigans Beach and back again on the walk/bike track - 45 mins.
Take advantage of the walk and bike track that
extends from Bay Centre to Batehaven. It is very popular for
well-being mind and body. I have
included the link for bike hire here:
Travelling along Beach Road towards Batehaven you
will see the Catalina Country Club on your right at a set of traffic lights.
Continue and you will see the Skate Ramp on your left. Take the next left
into the Hanging Rock Recreation Area and the car park. The photo on the
left is the new mural. The photo on the right shows the old mural.
