Hard track
Starting from the dirt/gravel car park at the end of Point Ann Road, this multi-day walk takes you on a journey along Point Charles Bay. Take occasional breaks through your walk and enjoy the open views of the ocean. The walk also passes through the beautiful bushland, offering you spectacular views of Lake Nameless as well. Swimming is not recommended in the bay as the waves can be unpredictable. There are resting areas for walkers through the walk. However, there is no water source located through the walk and no toilet facilities. The track can be long and rough in certain places, and the signage can be limited. 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.
