Hike Summary

A pretty coastal walk overlooking the yachts in Geilston Bay and provides views across the river to Selfs Point and kunanyi / Mount Wellington. A playground and good quality cycleway at Geilston Bay Regional Park is suitable for younger children learning to ride. The 400m gravel coastal path along the shoreline was hand-built using dry stone construction and during high tide the water laps the edge of the track. The remainder of the track is a hotmix pathway that follows the coast and passes through Anzac Park. Finish at Simmons Park in Lindisfarne where there is a playground and toilets. For an extended walk or bike ride it can be done in conjunction with other sections of the Clarence Foreshore Trail.


The track between Geilston Bay Regional Park and 100 Derwent Avenue is narrow and rocky and sections may be inundated during extremely high tides.
