Hi, Traveller My Account

Women's Otford Coastal Hike Saturday 2nd November

Travel & Outdoor

Details

A NEW LISTING Women Want Adventure hike that has it all.

If you're ready for a coastal track that covers hidden coves, beaches and explores the Figure Eight Pools at morning tea time for Andrea's famous Anzac biscuits, then this is the trip for you.

After meeting at Otford Car Park, our hike heads up stairs on the seaward side with stunning views, winding up the hill and along the fenced of cliffs, keeping the ocean to the right as it steadily climbs up the coastal track. After a while, the track breaks away from the cliff and continues along the bush track, climbing up the hill until coming to an intersection marked with a signpost saying 'Werrong Beach'.

We will be taking it slow on this day with many hills and of course stopping frequently for rest breaks.

On this moderate to hard day hike we will discover the Figure Eight Pools at our morning tea location north of Burning Palms Beach. Bring your swimmers for a dip!
