About the Walking Trail

A short walk from the Cape Borda Lighthouse to the nearby clifftop. Pause at the lookout to watch for seals, whales and dolphins.

The trail begins from the carpark at Cape Borda Lighthouse. An alternative is to start the hike from the vehicle entrance gate, where there is a small carpark and connecting walking trail to the end of the Return Road Hike. This adds another 700m (one-way) to the hike, or 2.3km return.
