Overall rating
  • Great circuit with young kids but sad to see the extensive rabbit burrow damage. Our kids enjoyed rock pooling on the back beach. We did not see the colored arrows but the track is very well defined and there are track posts/emergency markers along the way.

  • Very pleasant walk. However note that in this section …
    Once you have visited the Old Granite Quarry, you can take a 1.7-kilometer stroll north up the beach. Keep walking up the beach until you come to an area where the beach is backed by a steep slope of sand. Just past this sledding hill, there will be another tall trail post. Turn left here and head inland on a wide sandy track, following the sign for Cape Woolamai Car Park.
    If the tide is high you will need to clamber along the steep dune to make your way around the trees and bushes.
