Foreshore Promenade Walk

Time: 3.5 hours return. Duration: 7.5 kilometres. Difficulty: intermediate

Park at the Breakwater car park, at the end of Pertobe Road. For a shorter walk, park at McGennans Car Park, the first on your left past the kiosk as you drive down Pertobe Road.

If parking at the Breakwater, you may wish to stroll out along the Breakwater wall, viewing the spectacular Southern Ocean on your right and the tranquil waters of Lady Bay to your left. The Breakwater was completed in 1890 and was constructed specifically for protection of the early shipping fleets and beach front.

Return to the carpark along either the upper or lower level of the Breakwater.

Make your way toward the beach and onto the sealed promenade. The promenade is designed for all forms of wheeled transport, including wheelchairs, pushers, bicycles, rollerblades, scooters or you can walk along the beach.

This area is the city’s main beach, very popular during summer with swimmers, surfers and those who simply enjoy the sun. In peak times, a section of the beach is patrolled by lifeguards for safe swimming. You may wish to leave the promenade from time to time to enjoy the sand or wade on the waters edge.

 

The promenade continues for about five kilometres, to Logans Beach. Once you reach the surf club, turn left and cross over Pertobe Road at the traffic lights to the Adventure Playground.

This 35 hectare award winning playground is a favourite. The choices are endless, play on the adventure equipment, enjoy a game of cricket or feed the ducks.

Electric BBQ’s and shelters make the area popular for family picnics. The lake complex also has boat hire. A walking trail extends around the lakes, providing a ‘natural’ contrast to the rest of the manicured park.

 

To return to your car, either retrace your steps, or walk up tree lined Pertobe Road to the Breakwater car park.

Dogs on leads are permitted all year round with drinking water stations en route.
