Moderate track
This lovely, mostly flat walk starts at the Jetty Road parking area and follows the track along the coastline to Ricketts Point. At some places you can opt to walk along the sandy beach or follow the dirt track. Lovely views open up at every step of the way and there are plenty of seats to take a rest and take in the scenic coastal views. Dogs on leash are welcome too. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
