We parked at the nature reserve and walked south through several beaches on a cool, clear July morning right after the school holidays. Besides a few joggers, we had the beautiful beaches to ourselves. We returned at dusk and had Manly Beach to ourselves for a picturesque pink sunset.

We walked north to south on a windy day. The walk itself is relatively easy but there are some pockets of uphill track and several lots of stairs particularly if you want to go to the lookouts and viewing points. It is almost a two hour walk, that is with several stops and detours to the viewing areas. The beaches... More

Excellent walking trails and tracks that lead to different beaches in the area, lots of interesting historical stops on or around the coastal walk as well.

I love the outdoors and a bit of a fitness fanatic. Great views. A must if you are visiting Port Macquarie. May see Whales if you are lucky

So glad that this part of the NSW coast has been kept for the public and bravo to Port Macquarie for this great walk. We need more of these areas and a great attraction and views. It is just so relaxing to walk and see our lovely coastal features.

A truly world class walk from Port to Lighthouse Beach. An experience that is not to be missed. A cool drink at the Tacking Point surf club cafe makes a great finishing or turnaround refreshment stop.

You can do as much or as little as you like. Relatively easy with a few hills. The norhtern end is nearly all flat. Beautiful views all the way along - you can even spot whales. Pretty good width allowing people to pass easily. No bikes made it safe for children and older people. The sort of walk you can... More
