Boyds Tower to Saltwater Creek Walking Track
For an enticing sample of Light to Light walk, consider tracing a smaller section of its 30 kilometres, from Boyds Tower to Saltwater Creek walking track.
This invigorating walk undulates south past spectacular coastal forest, sandy beaches, rocky bays, sheltered inlets and ocean platforms. Leather Jacket Bay offers a scenic stretch of red rocks, coloured by iron oxide which cemented the sand particles together some 320 million years ago. And, if you’re after somewhere small and peaceful, Mowarry provides a picturesque sandy beach where you can go fishing or swimming.
There’s plenty of spots along the way to stop for picnics, swimming, fishing, or birdwatching. Flowers bloom in the woollybutt forest during spring. Whales frequent the area from late May to early December, making it a great time for whale watching.
