Coastal goodness along Point Elizabeth walk


Time: 3hr return, Distance: 4km each way

An interesting coastal/bush walk with good views and a few sites of historic interest along the way. There are wicked seascapes, coastal forest and gold mining remains along this walking track which links Cobden's North Beach with Rapahoe, just north of Greymouth. An easy walk well worth doing.

This walk is mostly flat after a short uphill start. Lovely views over the beach, we walked in the evening and watched the sunset over Tasman.

Easy walk next to the coast but without much views, at least for the first hour (to the lookout point Elizabeth). Nice walk in the bush though.

A stunning coastal walk with far less people and cooler views than the pancake rocks
