This one-day walk takes in part of the famous South Coast Track, beginning at the small town of Cockle Creek. Visitors observe native plants and birds as they cross coastal heathland, enjoy ocean views and gaze out over the expanse of the Southern Ocean imagining the distance between themselves and the nearest landmass of Antarctica.

Awesome scenery and views

This is quite a Turk and the early part is over rocks and uneven ground. However, once out on the board walk it's a pleasant stroll and well worth the walk out to the bay

Travel to Cockle Creek and park in the carpark by the Rangers Quarters. You need to display a parks pass on your vehicle. Depart on the track near the bridge, follow the track some of which is boardwalk, parts of the track provide a little uphill going on uneven ground, expect to walk over small rocks and you may encounter...

The trail to South Cape Bay is very beautiful and is easy/light moderate to go. It took us around 3 1/2 hours to go to the end and back to the car. The surroundings are changing by every step you do and there is so much to see. At the end you will get to a very big beach and... More

An amazing walk. Not too challenging but scenic and the view at the end of Australia is breathtaking. It's a bit windy and cold but so worth the walk.

We thoroughly enjoyed our walk from Cockle Creek to South Cape Bay. While the last 15 kms driving was rough (we hear it has been graded recently) the 1-2 hour walk to the Cape was easy going and excellently maintained. We enjoyed being able to walk at a good pace and appreciated the efforts to provide boarded walkways over swampy... More

It's Worth a 5k Walk from "Cockle Creek" to the Far South Coast of Tasmania, at South Cape Bay!. Take full Advantage of Camping at Cockle Creek, amongst the Dunes and Vastly Beautiful Beach, as you prepare for your Hike to the Cape!.

My partner, mother and I decided to take the drive down to cockle Creek to do this walk, we should have had hiking boots on as there were a lot of muddy areas on the track that were unavoidable however once we got to the end we were not disappointed, the view was fantastic, it says 4.5 hour return however...

History on whaling and saw log milling, the environment and the hard work that our early settlers endured. Very pretty place to relax in and appreciate. The road is terrible but worth the careful driving to dee this place

I went with a group of 4 friends and while we were fit, we were not experienced in hiking. The 4 hours return turns into much longer if you would like to that the time to look at the multitude of plants, aussie critters, and sceneries along the way as we did. The beach at end paid off though, such... More
