From SH1 in Palmerston, turn onto Tiverton St and carry on down Goodwood Rd until Bushy Hill Rd. Turn left here and almost immediately right onto Anderson Rd. Park up here, climb the stile and make your way past the lagoon to the beach.
Head North along the beach and you’ll come to a steel staircase. Please be aware, this coastline is primarily cliff faces and while you can walk along the beach at low tide, you do so at your own risk. We suggest you climb the stairs and take the high tide route.
This will take you toward the Shag River Mouth over the headlands with fantastic coastal views and fresh sea air. Keep an eye out for sea birds and if you’re walking along the beach, beware, seals and sea lions frequent this area too so maintain your distance.
