Hard track
Starting from the car park at the end of the unsealed side road off Honeysuckle Avenue, Sisters Beach, this walk takes you to Boat Harbour Beach. Enjoy a walk along the Postman's Track, named after the route once used for horseback mail deliveries, with a variety of vegetation and coastal scenery along the way. You'll climb into the forested hills of the Two Sisters, pass along the cliffs above Walkers Cove and follow the rocky shoreline to Boat Harbour Beach, a popular day-use area with excellent facilities. The route involves some steep hills, rough steps and narrow gaps between boulders. Sturdy footwear is essential and a walking stick is helpful, particularly for crossing the jagged rocks towards the end. This walk is best done at low tide, and alternate routes are used during high tides. 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.
