The bay is very popular for surfing, with waves suitable for all levels, and its sandy beach is great for swimming, beachcombing, fishing, and more.
This walking track is an extensive historic trek through New Zealand gold mining history with relics left from the Chinese and European settlement from the 19th century. Walkers will enjoy quiet native bush as they walk the gravel track, spot old saw milling artifacts, look out for native birds, and view the crumbling earth dams.
There are multiple tracks that start and end from this point but there is a loop track available for day-walkers which takes 2hr15min.
Note: Dog access is allowed if the dog is on a leash. Go here for more dog friendly walks and areas in Southland.
