Description

This is an urban track between the houses and the clifftop, with spectacular views over the mouth of the Derwent and Blackmans Bay from Taroona down to the Iron Pot. Aboriginal people also gathered here. A large midden has been concealed and protected to enable the track to pass safely over. Blackmans Bay Coastcare Group continue to restore the coastal vegetation along this track.

The Council has now extended the track into the Dog Exercise Area next to the Treatment Plant allowing walkers to escape from suburbia into delightful bush land within minutes.

The track provides a 3km return trip along the coast and includes a recent addition of a bush loop at the southern end of the track taking you into thicker bushland with views of the surrounding areas.
