Circuit

A meandering coastal pathway taking in local bushland and secluded beach accesses.

SUITABILITY
This walk is suitable for families and all ages. The track includes formed pathways and a section of beach sand.

HIGHLIGHTS
The trail begins at Tasman Tresser Park where there is a dedicated car park and direct beach access. The start begins along the sandy dunes of Marcus Beach before edging into the bushland and joining the coastal pathway. Once underway the track crosses several timber bridges over creeks and passes a number of secluded beach access points, a perfect selection for those who have packed swimmers! For those looking to bring scooters or bikes for the kids, the beach section can be substituted for the roadside running parallel. The path incorporates a healthy sand dune system and a protected swale including rainforest plants such as Port Jackson Fig and Cheese Trees. The ground cover includes a number of plants including a Coastal Wattle and Twining Guinea Flower. The turnaround point is Castaways Beach at access path 41. There is also a car park located at this point for those waiting on a pick up or the trail can be flipped to utilise this as the starting point. This space also features picnic tables and toilet facilities.

The trail is approximately 45 minutes’ walk one way.

AFTERWARDS
Return via the way you came or cool off with a swim at one of the beach access points.

HOW TO GET THERE
To Start: Via David Low Way, turn onto Mealeuca St, Tasman Trespasser Park is on the left.
