Coningham Clifftop Track is accessed from a numer of locations along the coast in Coningham including Stubbings Street and Coningham Road. There is parking available at the start and the end of the track.
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.
