From the car park, go down the road to the start of the track. Say hi to the alpaca's near the start of the track.

Easy to follow track although it can be muddy at times (after heavy rain fall). 

Keep following the track pass the mangroves until you reach the boat yard on Shelly Beach. The last part before the boat yard goes through someone's back yard, but this is a marked track. After enjoying the view on the beach, turn around and go back the same way. At low tide you can continue along the foreshore to Cockle bay (please take care as this can be slippery).
