Getting There

Start from Geilston Bay Regional Park at Debomfords Lane, off the East Derwent Highway.

A pretty coastal walk overlooking the yachts in Geilston Bay and provides views across the river to Selfs Point and kunanyi / Mount Wellington. A playground and good quality cycleway at Geilston Bay Regional Park is suitable for younger children learning to ride. The 400m gravel coastal path along the shoreline was hand-built using dry stone construction and during high tide the water laps the edge of the track. The remainder of the track is a hotmix pathway that follows the coast and passes through Anzac Park. Finish at Simmons Park in Lindisfarne where there is a playground and toilets. For an extended walk or bike ride it can be done in conjunction with other sections of the Clarence Foreshore Trail.
