Starting from the Narawntapu National Park carpark on Bakers Beach Road, Bakers Beach, this walk takes you along the parks scenic coastline all the way to Greens Beach. Following the coastal border of the park between Bakers Beach and Greens Beach, this walk makes for an epic day-long adventure. Enjoy the superb coastal views, with fascinating changes in the landscape and a variety of wildflowers and rare plants. From the eastern end of Bakers Beach a marked track zig-zags up to Little Badger Head before descending to Copper Cove where there is a good picnic spot with fresh water from Windred Creek. From the cove the track continues around the headland past the tiny settlement of Badger Head, traversing the full length of Badger Beach. A short detour to the top of West Head leads to a lookout atop the cliffs, where there are magnificent panoramic coastal views. Following the cliff-top track around West Head, you'll reach an unsealed road that leads past Pebbly Beach to the Greens Beach township. Take your time and enjoy the magnificent coastal scenery, swimming and fishing spots along the way. If a car is left at each end, this walk can easily be done one-way as a day walk. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the Tamar Island Wetlands Centre just off the West Tamar Highway, Riverside, this walk leads to the Tamar River Conservation Area via the Tamar Island Walkway. A long boardwalk leads out to the island, taking you right through the wetland between phragmites australis reeds and over the river itself. Along the way, you’re likely to see numerous different species of water birds, as well as frogs, dragonflies and lizards. A short side track leads to a bird hide, where you can quietly observe a variety of birds on the lagoon, including pelicans, swans, cormorants and great egrets. If you look carefully, you can see the wreck of the 'Platypus' that was sunk in the channel in order to improve the water flow. The well-constructed boardwalk is open in daylight all year long and is suitable for strollers and wheelchairs. On Tamar Island, there are picnic tables, barbeques and toilet facilities as well as a jetty giving access to the island via boat. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
