This walk goes for several klms but you can do a short or long walk depending on your fitness. Plenty of beaches and cafes along most of the way as well as exercise stations

Beautiful morning walk along the beaches and headlands from town to lighthouse. A must do. Don't forget the camera.

Totally loved this beach walk with the different beaches , steps , views and length. It was a great morning walk and was a treat to find Flynns Beach , went back there for morning tea.

My wife and I walked the part from Shelly Beach to the light house. It is a gravel trail and some sections are rutted with loose gravel. It is a fair hike and not easy grade as some pamphlets suggest. Maybe worth the walk but...More

The paths along the water front go for kilometres. It takes in the Marina, the Town Green and several of the beaches. The painted rocks along the sea break are a fun feature. There’s also a couple of spots to stop for a coffee or...More

It depends on which way you walk. If you walk in to town from Lighthouse Beach there is a bus that goes to the lighthouse area. I'm not sure how often the bus runs though as it is a private bus service and may be infrequent... More
