MacLaren Point to Taylor's Landing
Starting from the MacLaren Point car park off Donington Road, Lincoln National Park, this walk takes you to Taylor's Landing. Lincoln National Park is a rugged peninsula that boasts some of the most scenic coastline in South Australia, with granite headlands, sheltered bays, sandy beaches and offshore islands, featuring an extensive network of walking trails that pass through native scrub and woodland, across beaches and along clifftops where visitors may spot sea-eagles, dolphins or whales. The park encompasses the vast Sleaford-Wanna sand dune system and the beautiful Memory Cove Wilderness Protection Area, protecting important coastal vegetation of the Eyre Peninsula and providing habitat for rare fauna such as heath goannas, western whipbirds and the bush stone-curlew. This moderately challenging walk winds through coastal mallee and across sandy beaches along the coastline between MacLaren Point and Taylor's Landing, offering spectacular coastal views along the way. Both MacLaren Point and Taylor's Landing have white sandy beaches with safe, sheltered waters that are ideal for swimming. The walk begins near the MacLaren Point Campground, which is accessible by 4WD only, suitable for tents and off-road camper trailers and has no facilities. This walk consists of narrow, gently undulating walking trails, with uneven natural surfaces and sandy surfaces, suitable for moderate fitness levels, and can be done in either direction. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
