Gap Beach Circuit Walking Track

Gap Beach Circuit Walking Track

Distance: 5 kilometres
Difficulty: Moderate to Difficult

A walk with some steep sections through rainforest areas and along the beach.

From Arakoon Road turn into Gap Beach Road. After a sealed section it turns into a dirt road which is best navigated with 4-wheel drive vehicles. There are rutted, steep sections, and driving this road in wet weather is not recommended.

After 2 kilometres, you come to a flat area with plenty of parking space.

At the southern end of that area you see the start of the Green Island Fire Trail, but to walk the Gap Beach circuit, you turn back in the direction you came from.

Walk along the road you have driven up. Watch out for cars – especially during the holiday seasons. After 600 metres, turn right towards North Gap Beach.

Follow this road for about 500 metres until you see the Little Bay Walking Track straight ahead.

Turn right and follow the Management Road down towards the beach. After about 600 metres the road ends and a walking track leads to North Gap Beach.

Walk along the beach for about 1.2 kilometres to the southern access.

From South Gap Beach take the walking track and then the very steep road back to the car park at the beginning of the Green Island Fire Trail.

Picnic tables at North and at South Gap Beach invite rest. There are toilets at South Gap Beach.
