Tangara Trail - Roches Beach Loop

This circuit has a mixture of remnant bushland, open paddocks and coastal views.

From the carpark horse riders will need to go along Kirra Rd while walkers and bikers can follow the Clarence Coastal Trail northward for 400m and take the track that connects to Kirra Rd.

Follow the Axiom Track over the small hill keeping the fenceline on your left until you reach an open paddock. At the intersection with the Nowra Track turn left down the hill, across Nowra Rd and veer towards the left onto the Old Monmouth Track. (Shortcut option – turn right instead and head towards Five Ways). Go through the gateways at Sirocco Court and continue south towards Roches Beach Rd until you reach the Everton Track. Turn right and head towards Acton Road.

At Acton Road turn right onto the Acton Road South Track and follow it for approximately 1.3km until you reach a pump station where the Old Monmouth Track goes uphill to the right. Head up the hill and turn right towards Five Ways. At Five Ways turn left onto the Axiom Track to Penelope Place. Cross Axiom Way and continue along the track until you reach the open paddock and intersection with the Nowra Track. Continue straight ahead up the hill with the fenceline on your left where you will be rewarded with views across Roches Beach. Continue down the other side of the hill to Kirra Rd and retrace your steps back to the carpark.

The track is mostly a narrow footpad with an unformed surface and may contain trip hazards, overgrown vegetation and boggy areas after rain. Horse riders need to take care on Kirra Road as there is no verge.

 Dogs are to remain on lead.
