Please note
  • Both tracks are easy but you’ll find the Scribbly Gum track steeper with more steps.
  • If you'd like a slightly longer walk, try the path that goes from Chinamans Beach to Aster Street, Hyams Beach.
  • You’ll find alternative paths offering pretty detours along the way – try the path that goes from Chinamans Beach to Cyrus Street.
  • There is also a council walking track north from Greenfield Beach that goes to Plantation Point via Blenheim Beach, and has several lookouts along the way. It makes a good extension to the national park tracks.
  • Remember to take your swimmers, you’re sure to want to take a dip in at least one of the beaches.

The White Sands walk and the Scribbly Gum track are interconnected walking tracks which together create a beautiful – and easy – loop walk.

Start the White Sands walk at Greenfield Beach picnic area, or if you’d like a longer walk, you can start from Plantation Point, north of Greenfield Beach. From Greenfield Beach picnic area, you’ll pass Chinamans, Hyams and Seamans beaches, so remember to take your swimmers if you fancy a quick dip along the way.

You’ll be treated to incredible bay views at various points along the track, which is a top spot for birdwatching and glimpsing dolphins.

The return leg along the Scribbly Gum track takes you away from the coastline, through tall forest and woodland, finishing up at the top of Greenfield Beach picnic area. Spy some furry locals including possums and gliders.
