King Island

Take the sea walk from Wellington Point to King Island at low tide and enjoy the tiny island’s sandy tracks, abundance of trees, mangroves and diverse wildlife.

Start with a picnic or barbecue at the beautiful Wellington Point Reserve, with waterside playground and amazing trees for the children to climb through, and then begin the 2km round trip on the sand walkway that appears as the tide falls.

King Island is a protected conservation park, and the walk reveals a diverse range of marine life, including small mud crabs, left behind by the receding waters. Wear plenty of sun protection and take water for the journey, and start the walk back by the time the tide begins to rise again so the return trail stays in sight.

Dogs are permitted off leash on the walk on weekdays only.
