This is a beginner hike that produces spectacular views shortly after you begin the route. The hike begins in a small protected bay that looks like an excellent place for a swim. It then follows the coastline along Francis Peninsula to the light. An ideal...More

This is a moderate walk. In a few areas, I would have liked my walking stick, but still managed fine. Wear a hat as most of the path is not in the trees. The lighthouse is more like a beacon and not what we had...More

I wish I had time to hike the whole thing, great west coast scenery with a well maintained but more natural trail.

Try and make it to the lighthouse at the end. It’s well worth it although on the day we were there it was blowing a gale. Very invigorating! Along the way there are some superb coverings of mosses and lichens and some lovely examples of...More

This track along the coast is under two miles but every step is a delight. Rocky pathways, some scrambling and areas of rich vegetation make is a varied walk, but with the ocean as a constant companion within a few metres. We had sunshine for...More

A nice walk along the cliffs to the lighthouse! Can be a little slippery after a rainfall! An outhouse is located by the parking lot!
