Did this walk impromptu with a friend - but have also done it a couple of years ago. Good, easy and fun!

Beautiful part of the world to take a lovely walk in.

A nice, easy walk around the river & coastline with a path the whole way. Lots of beach inlets & viewing platforms. Great way to spend the afternoon.

Couldn’t have done this last Sunday! Two small detours due to water erosion.

LOVED this walk, lots of beautiful beach inlets to explore. Much better than Tweed River Walk. I walked it in my thongs and stopped a lot to take photos. Would walk again.

Great circuit with some hills for fitness training.

This was a much nicer walk than the Tweed river walk. It has some really nice views along the way. While the track is paved all the way some parts are covered by sand. We saw whales from the headland which was fantastic.

An easy, short and paved walk with plenty to see along the way. As there isn't much shade along the way this one is best done in the early morning or late afternoon.
