Harbourmasters Walking Trail, Port Elliot

Spring 2018: The map below may not be available right now, please try again later.

We are experiencing severe rate limiting imposed by Google under their new map pricing arrangements. We will be implementing a solution to ensure as many people as possible can access the walking maps.

Under Google's new pricing structure, we will incur an annual fee in excess of AUD $5,000 for a service which was previously free. As a not-for-profit body largely lead by volunteers this is not an insignificant charge. You can support our work in promoting walking and walking trails with an membership from $22 per year.

About the Walking Trail

A 1.9km circuit hike between Horseshoe Bay, across the headland to Knights Beach. The trail begins at the ruins of the Harbour Master’s Cottage opposite the YHA on the Strand. The trail follows a cobblestone path around the headland of Freemans Knob past Ladys Beach, Rocky Bay and Green Bay before reaching Knights Beach. The trail returns along the Esplanade and the Centenary Stairs and past Freemans Lookout.

The trail is well marked with brown timber posts. The trail may not be ideal for prams due to the cobblestone path on the lower section of the trail.
