05Oct18. A nice walk in the bush to the beach. Take care, there have been a few slips on the way.
It joins up with the Snout Track, see separate review.

Beautiful views of Picton harbour and hills. Moderately difficult walk, but well worth it to Bob's Bay. We were sorry we did not bring a picnic!

Nice walk if you have got some time in Picton, but not a must.

A reasonable short walk, but Bob's Bay was underwhelming. Not really sure it was worth the effort, but OK to pass an hour or so.
