Estimated Times to Run







From the carpark with the beach at your back, head around the carpark road to the left and you will see some trail signs pointing uphill... and up you go, a nice little vert to get the blood pumping.

At the top turn right and follow the red marked posts along the ridge taking in some amazing views and then down through a paddock and a lovely (too short) bush section and onto the grass near the beach huts. Look left here and you will see the sign for the Lookout Track at the end of the grass. Head up there, do a wee loop at the top snapping pics and head down, then onto the beach and along until you are back at the carpark.

Here about 50m from the beach you should see the Blue trail start. Follow the Blue trail until you come to the trail out to the point - you will spot it by the big warning sign - then head all the way down one of the numerous track to the point. Again take in some magic views and then turn around - curse when you see how far back up you have to go - then climb back. Once you reach the gate at the warning sign carry on with the Blue trail until you reach the top of the first climb. Don't go down but instead carry on another 300m and when you come through the gate near the top of the park take a sharp right and you should see the Sled Track. Follow this down the hill and back to the car.

Lots of views

Great views, interesting park. Unfortunately the track out to Mullet point is closed so unable to go right out there.
