Great walk to do if you are reasonably fit, as it is 9 kms on a mixture of boardwalk, bush trails, stairs and sand. There are places to stop along the first part for toilets and water.

This walk was amazing! It wasn't a difficult walk and the views are definitely worth it! I did it after a swim so didnt have my camera with me but i wish i did as the ocean views were spectacular.

Amazing to have such a scenic and well planed walk in Port Macquarie! How lucky are we. It is well sign posted with water stations on the way! Literal rainforest, ocean views, picnic areas, coffee shops, food ...... what more can any hiker/ walker/ family ask for!

A great paved walk with plenty of climbing to get the heart rate up. Very scenic with plenty of vantage points to stop & enjoy the Australian coastline.

Great for visitors to the Port Macquarie region. The Shelly Beach entrance of the coastal walk in Port Macquarie. Fantastic walk which will take you into the city centre or Lighthouse beach.
