Tuross Head Foreshore
The magnificent waterways of the popular coastal hamlet of Tuross Head are the setting for this easy and enjoyable family ride. The ride follows the Coila Lake, ocean and Tuross River foreshores on the off-road shared pathway. There are stunning ocean views, rocky outcrops, the Norfolk Pines, dramatic headlands and bird-life for enthusiast photographers, as well as shops, picnic areas and toilets en-route. You can start from anywhere on the pathway but starting at the Coila Lake end will ensure you work up an appetite and thirst for coffee and food at the boat sheds area on Tuross Lake, near the end of the ride. There is interpretative signage along the route and a brief side trip into the Memorial Gardens at Plantation Point is worthwhile; a popular wedding spot with a picture perfect ocean backdrop. Further along the cycleway, deviate by foot out to One Tree Point which provides an impressive view along the coast.
