This is a pretty coastal track overlooking the yachts in Geilston Bay. There are views across the river to Selfs Pint and Mt Wellington. A playground and good quality cycleway at Geilston Bay Regional Park is suitable for younger children learning to ride. The 400m gravel coastal path along the shoreline was hand-built using drystone construction and during high tide, the water laps the edge of the track. The remainder of the track is a bitumen pathway that follows the coast to Talune Street, then along the widened footpath to ANZAC Park. Finish at Simmons Park in Lindisfarne where there is a playground and toilets.
