This is an off-leash area that is shared with walkers and mountain bikers. There are many other track options created by the local multisport club, the track is easy to follow, mostly hard packed dirt. Follow the main route up to the gun emplacement and then head down and left to the stairs and down to the beach (on this route I turned around at the beach to head back), then head back up the track and towards the emplacement again, take a left up the trail about 20m before the emplacement and head up the hill. There are many trails up there but they all meet back up to the main track, follow this back to the carpark. It is quite up and down so makes for a great short run or do loops to create a longer one.
Features of interest
There are lookout points and gun emplacements, seals on the beach, blue penguins also come in on the beach
