Really enjoyed this lovely coastal walk. Didn't complete it totally (9kms one way) but did most of it - and it can be done in stages over a couple of days if preferred.

It is a tough walk with many stairs, especially coming out of Flynns Beach. Went from South to North taking an hour 40 to reach Town Beach. Next time I'll try the opposite direction.

Lovely walk along the coast with water stations available along the way, sealed path makes things easy for this with strollers, and a bonus is all the fitness equipment along the track you can use. Beautiful views!

Not a hard walk by serious walkers standards but really a good experience with the feeling of being a little isolated but still very much in touch with the wider world.

This is a very spectacular coastal walk covering many beaches. Starting in town & meandering out to Lighthouse Beach around cliffs & rainforest.

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

Probably not a good idea with a pram. It is quite steep in sections and sandy beaches. There are other nice walkways around Port that you can do with a pram. Be advised that the area is in for a deluge rain front over the... More
