Enjoy a healthy walk with great views
A beautiful coastal cliff walk can be achieved by everyone, no matter your level of fitness. This 800 metre, paved walk trail offers views out to the ocean, colourful vegetation in season and informative signage along the route.

The walk starts from the north side of Mindarie Marina, at the carpark on Rossclare Promenade and ends at the carpark outside Quinns Rocks Caravan Park.

A statue marks the begining of the walk opposite the small beach on Rossclare Promendade.

This area was used for grazing from the late 1800's. In 1933 limestone was burned in the area to produce the lime required for gold refinery. The remains of a lime kiln can be seen at Coopers Park just 600 metres up the road in Rossclare Prom.

In the 1950's fishermen shacks used to dot the area. There have been may shipwrecks along this coastline.

There are many rock pools along this coast. Abalone graze on the local seaweed and you can spot the occasional crab before it darts under the rocks.

At the end of the walk is Portofinos cafe and restaurant. In front of the cafe is a universal access ramp for disabled people to go down to the beach. Showers and a public toilet block are next to a small playground area.
