The walk along the clifftops along Marino rocks offers something for everyone. Good scenery, a brisk walk, stairs, seats, views. There are also some information signs which make a start on educating about the natural surroundings. The trail can be a good workout if you...More

Really beautiful walk with some moderately difficult stair sections. You can take dogs on portions of the walk (not through the Hallett Cove Conservation Park) and we found starting from Clifftop Crescent and walking away from the Conservation Park was a really good dog-friendly section.

This can be linked in with a visit to the Hallet Cove Conservation Park. Great underfoot walking in all conditions especially the lengthy boardwalk section. Great coastal scenery and views out to sea.
