Darby River to Tongue Point Walk

From Darby River Carpark gently climb an ancient sand dune for magnificent views of Darby River as it snakes through the deep valley towards the Vereker Range.

Continue over the saddle along a coastal headland of weathered granite. The spectacular granite tors are the main feature at the walks end where a semi-detached island is covered in boulders of all shapes.

For your safety, do not cross to the semi-detached island. A short detour will take you down to the secluded shores of Fairy Cove.

This Grade 4 trail is 3.8 km, 2 hours one way. Return using the same route or for a more challenging walk, organise a car shuffle and finish your journey at Darby Saddle (9.4 km, 4.5 hours).

Toilets are located in Darby River Carpark. Beware of unprotected cliffs.
