About the Walking Trail
Starting from Long Beach, a 12km loop path is being constructed. When completed, the Loop Trail will allow people to use sections of the trail to access the town centre, the towns many beaches or just to enjoy the scenery of Robe while undertaking a healthy activity.
The existing path was informal, degraded and close to the cliff. The trail is being rebuilt as crushed limestone, suitable for wheels, and as an environmentally sustainable path further from the cliff edge. The new shared-use path is designed for walkers, cyclists, people with mobility issues and prams.
The following trails are now open:
- Obelisk, south to the Lighthouse on Blacker Street, 1.4km (wheelchair friendly)
- Obelisk, east to Victoria Street, 2.1km (wheelchair friendly)
- Seafarers Crescent, east to Long Beach, Guichen Bay, 1.5km
Still under development:
- Full loop when complete, 12km
The trail passes the Obelisk, the Encounter Signal, the Old Gaol, jetty, the Blowhole, Factory Bay and some historical sites from the Admella Discovery Trail. The Admella Discovery Trail is a 130km driving route, that explores the history of the wrecking on the ship Admella in 1859, and the chain of misfortune for the survivors during the week that followed.
