Description

From the white sands of Coningham Beach take this wonderful bushwalk along the cliffs with spectacular view across North West Bay to kunanyi / Mount Wellington, Tinderbox and Bruny Island. Along the way you will often see white-bellied sea-eagles soaring overhead. During morning and evening walks the bush will ring with birdsong. Rustic wooden seats give an excuse for a pause to soak up the peace and the scenery. Halfway along you will come to Legacy Beach, a great place for children to play and to stop for a cuppa.

There is a wonderful variety of vegetation along the track: flowering heath beneath tall blue gums, white gums favoured by the endangered forty-spotted pardalote, stands of sheoaks, and patches of native grasses where you will find lovely golden bulbine-lillies.

Coningham Beach is a safe family beach for swimming, paddling, boating and picnicking. The friends of Coningham Nature Recreation Area and PWS initiated this track. Do not approach cliff edges. Closely supervise children.
