One of my favourite trails. We enjoyed the loop section down by the beach, trudged across 2m deep seaweed and up the steep stairs to Whalers Cove Lookout. From there the trail takes walkers across the coastal ridge which provides some stunning views out to Mount Manypeaks, but the highlight being the rocky pools, Little Beach and a little further over to the less visited Waterfall Beach.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
