I recommend the gorgeous views. But the council has obviously designed and built the walkway as cheaply as possible. The steps are badly configured. Too deep and wide so they will damage people's joints. They tried to get away with putting in one step in...More

Parking off the road is provided. On with comfortable walking shoes and take your time to enjoy the view as you walk along part of the coastline of some of the best beaches in the nation. The walking tracks are well cared for and easygoing.

The broad walk at Hallett Cove is a fantastic walk but can be a bit of a workout for those not regular walkers. The broad walk is nice and safe, with plenty of rest stops. The view is spectacular especially on mild nights at sunset.

The walk from kingston park to hallet cove is just over 5kms and if you take side tracks and walk to the end of hallect cove beach it is 7km. Allow 1.5 hours each way at a reasonable pace. There are a number of stairs...More
