Estimated Times to Run







From parking in Humber Street head out left onto Pandora Road and head North over the road bridge and go onto the Lime trail. Follow this along to end and turn right through the truck carpark towards the pub and then left past the camp ground.

Enter the boardwalk and cross over the expressway onto Watchman Rd and head down to the airport. Turn left onto the lime trail at the end that follows alongside the gravel farm road. This winds through a trees in a park like area before turning left at the stock bank and following it back towards the Expressway.

The trail passes over the stock bank, under the express way (20cm flooded at hightide for 20m) and under the rail bridge. Follow the track up to the rail bridge, turn left and cross over it on the disused roadway. Carry on for 500m then take the trail heading off down to the left (marked by an orange post) across the small foot bridge. This last trail flows alongside Pandora Estuary taking you back Humber Street carpark and the start point.
