Starting from Tomaree Crescent, Boar Harbour, this gentle fire trail leads to spectacular ocean views over cliffs and sea caves. If you're feeling more adventurous, there is the opportunity to carefully explore the unfenced cliff tops to see more of this stunning area. Let us begin by acknowledging the Worimi people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
