Long Beach via Yangie Track
Starting from the Yangie Bay Campground at the end of Coffin Road, Coffin Bay National Park, this walk takes you to Long Beach and back via the Long Beach Hike. Located within Coffin Bay National Park on South Australia's Eyre Peninsula, the sheltered waters of Yangie Bay offer an ideal place for canoeing and provide a spectacular backdrop to the Yangie Bay Campground, the starting point for several walking trails, accessible to all vehicles and suitable for caravans. The park is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including emus, goannas and kangaroos, as well as seabirds such as albatrosses, ospreys, petrels and white-bellied sea eagles. This moderately challenging hike follows sandy trails through coastal mallee, vegetated sand dunes and samphire flats, offering excellent views of Yangie Bay and Yangie Island. The trail heads slightly inland before emerging at the aptly named Long Beach, an extensive white sand beach that provides a fantastic spot to enjoy the sunset over Coffin Bay, with calm and shallow waters that are suitable for swimming and paddling. This walk consists of sandy, gently undulating walking trails, with some overgrown sections, suitable for average fitness levels. 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.
