  • NB The track on the northeastern side is currently under water and is CLOSED. The walk to the picnic seat on the souwestern track is still clear. The circuit can still be achieved but be prepared for a walk in ti-tree thickets.
  • Gather food and drink for a picnic lunch.
  • For a full day out plan a barbeque dinner at Penny's Lagoon. Take barbeque beads.
  • Covered picnic spots with toilets are at Penny's Lagoon and Cape Wickham.
Activities

Once you go over Pass River you'll be "up North", home of the Bulldogs footy team.

No shops, no servos but choose your beach experience from a surfing destination of world renown at Martha Lavinia, miles of shorebird habitat, maritime heritage sites and great beach fishing spots. Terry Perry's shop in the main street can provide bait, gear and local fishing information.

Plan at least a day for the North. The other walks on this trail are:

Shannon Shipwreck Walk and Cape Wickham to Victoria Cove

From Penny's Lagoon continue down Lavinia Road to the beach, a great spot for catching sea salmon or, on rare occasions, gathering Nautilus shells.

Lavinia point has a shore break which attracts surfers from all over the world.
