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.
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.
