Burrewarra Point is a large headland just south of Batemans Bay on the south coast of New South Wales. There are good snorkeling spots on both the north and south sides of the headland, a good swimming beach on the north side at Guerilla Bay, and a large Banksia forest on the headland with a very pleasant walking track running through it.
