Starting near the Banksia Campground on Fortescue Bay Road, Fortescue, this walk leads to Bivouac Bay and back via the Tasman Coastal Trail. This walk begins traversing the full length of the stunning white sands of Fortescue Bay. Once at the other end of the beach, the trail gently climbs to a modest clifftop, then skirts the coastline from above through light bush and forest. About halfway along the track, you will come to Canoe Bay, where the remains of a shipwreck can be seen rusting upon the rocks. After some short and steep climbs, the trail descends through thick blue gum canopies and huge tree ferns to the rocky inlet of Bivouac Bay. There are toilets, and you can collect fresh water in Bivouac Creek. If you are lucky, you may also spot seals, dolphins, or whales in the bay. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
