Route/Trail notes:

This walk has a number of access points, but the official start is from the car park behind the Museum, where will find an information board map. Head out and after 100m on the left is 'access 1, opposite the police station'. After a further 100m branch left and skirt around a dam and head towards the lookout 'access 2, from Caravan Park'. Just before the lookout is 'access 3, the cliff face at the end of the beach'.

Leaving the lookout, branch left until you reach 'access 4, the Camping Site', with the option to walk down onto Workman's Beach, before following the path beside the camp access road and then turning right to head back to the start.

Permits/Costs:

None.

Remember to take your swimmers and towel, for a quick dip on one of the beaches.

Comments

I was very confused by the old description of this walk as it indicated access only from the Caravan Park. I ended up scaling the rock at the end of the beach to cut the track near the lookout. Having now walked it twice, hopefully my new details will help other walkers.

Easy walk, views are beautiful.

An easy walk with stunning views, I would recommend doing it in the morning or afternoon as the lights nicer.

Nice part of the world. There was not one foot print on the beaches and I did not see a soul the whole walk.

Nice walk up the hill, will perfect scenery the entire way. The view from the lookout is a must see !
