Access and parking: Start from the Cremorne Beach Park carpark and walk north along the beach to the start of the track. There are additional access points at the end of Forest Hill Road and Bayside Drive.

Dogs: The track passes through Calverts Hill Nature Reserve, which is managed by the Parks and Wildlife Service and contains the rare and endangered Eucalyptus Morrisbyi. Dogs and other animals are not permitted in the nature reserve, but council is working with the Parks and Wildlife Service to have the classification of the coastal strip changed to permit formal track construction and dog walking along that section of coast.


The Cremorne to Mays Beach track is part of the Clarence Coastal Trail and traverses 4.5 kilometres between Cremorne Beach Park and the southern end of Mays Beach. A further kilometre along Mays Beach will take walkers to Bayside Drive, if a car shuffle has been arranged. From the track is spectacular views across Frederick Henry Bay to Primrose Sands and the Tasman Peninsula.

Prior to white settlement, the Moomairremener people of the Oyster Bay Nation lived seasonally along the coast. The May family purchased property in 1874 and Mays Point, Mays Beach and Mays Hill are named after them. The family had orchards and grew apples, pears and cherries, with the wharf at Mays Beach used to ship the fruit to market.

The coastal strip is now public land.
