View from Carrackalinga Point

Enjoy the views all the way back to Rapid Bay

 

Many of our guests are familiar with the stunning scenery that Deep Creek

Conservation Park has to offer but did you know that there is a wealth of other

attractions to explore in our district?  The coastline along the Southern tip of the

Fleurieu Peninsula is a treasure trove of wonderful scenery and photo opportunities.

Today the focus is on a walk/bike trail that runs from the foreshore carpark at Normanville

to North Bay at Carrickalinga. This journey is an easy 20 minutes each way by bike.

Starting at the Normanville Beach carpark follow Jetty Road

till the end and turn left on to Carrackalinga Road.

There is a dedicated shared bike/footpath separate from the main

road that runs all the way to Carrackalinga.

 

Carrackalinga Bike Ride

The path is separated from road traffic for most of the way.

 

Once you cross Carrackalinga Creek turn left on to Riverview Drive

which then turns in to Gold Coast Drive.  As the road turns back towards Bennett Street

you will again see a shared pathway on your left for pedestrians and cyclists only.

Follow this past Haycock Point lookout all the way to Carrackalinga Point

lookout (the half way mark).  Take a moment to savour the views all the way back to Rapid Bay.

The return journey is sweetened by the thought of refreshments at the Normanville Beach Cafe.
