Not many options in this part of the region, but this is a nice little scenic run to work up a sweat.

Starting at the car park, take the Deliverance Cove track up through the forest and along the gently climbing single-track that overlooks the beach. After 1.5k, the track descends onto the beach. Follow the beach back, then go past the car park and up the sealed path to the lighthouse for some great views. Follow the steps up to the summit, then down and back around to the lighthouse, before heading back down the sealed path and across the beach to the car park.
