A car park is located adjacent to the Mt Cass Road, with three lookouts along the route providing spectacular views of Tiromoana Bush itself, including wetlands and forests, together with spectacular coastal cliffs, Pegasus Bay and Banks Peninsula in the distance. You can imagine Captain Cook feeling justified in thinking Banks Peninsula was an island from here, an error that makes sense from this perspective!
The track leads to the remote beach and very picturesque setting where Kate Stream enters Pegasus Bay, with the option to explore further along this beach. The return loop on the southern side of the valley allows walkers to traverse through the heart of Tiromoana Bush and return to the Mt Cass Road car park via bush remnants and wetlands, with further spectacular views along the coast.
For extra you can also nip up Ella's Peak for some additional vert.

Features of interest
A fun farm loop trail with a surprisingly remote feel and a gem of a beach to boot. The Tiromoana Track is located in a QEII Reserve that was set aside for recreation and ecological restoration as part of the nearby Kate Valley project.
