West Harbour Loop Track Description
This is a lovely coastal track that makes its way from the West Harbour Marina alongside the harbour and through Luckens Reserve.
The track could be walked out and back along the coast or use our suggested loop. The loop is about 4.5km and takes just over an hour. It could be shortened by looping back through Luckens Reserve.
The track is paved 99% of the way and does not contain any stairs. There are some steep sections around Luckens Reserve and through to the turn-around.
There are seats periodically placed along the walk for a nice resting spot.
Luckens reserve is excellent with lovely gently large sloped grass areas, children’s playground, toilets, drinking fountain and plenty of parking.
Buggies and Wheelchairs
The track is paved 99% of the way and does not contain any stairs. It is suitable for buggies and wheelchairs, although parts before Luckens Reserve and beyond Luckens Reserve to the turnaround are very steep and probably too difficult for wheelchairs. Lighter buggies with a fit ‘pusher’ should be ok – although in wet conditions it may become dangerous.
