Coffin Bay Oyster Walk

Eyre Peninsula

ATDW pixel
Follow the Coffin Bay Oyster Walk as it meanders through the coastal vegetation and idyllic shoreline of Coffin Bay and Kellidie Bay, one of Australia's premier oyster growing destinations. The Oyster Walk follows the coastline between Long Beach in the west and Snapper Point in the east, passing the Coffin Bay boat ramp, town centre and jetty. A loop through the Kellidie Bay Conservation Park incorporates a climb up to the Coffin Bay Lookout where you are rewarded with sweeping views over the waterways.

The main walking trail is 8km long and can be completed as an entire walk or in shorter sections . The majority of the walk has a Grade 2 difficultly with a well signposted formed track and covers relatively flat coastal areas with rest points and minimal steps. The loop to the Coffin Bay Lookout is Grade 3 with some steep sections. A 300-metre section on Long Beach is a Grade 4 unformed beach track.

There is an additional trail which takes you from Snapper Point to Old Oyster Town. Old Oyster Town is the site of the original settlement dating back to the 1850s, and is located within the Kellidie Bay Conservation Park. Little remains of the original settlement with only a well and lavender bush marking the area. This section has not been graded for difficulty.
<p>Caters for people with sufficient mobility to climb a few steps but who would benefit from fixtures to aid balance. (This includes people using walking frames and mobility aids)</p>
