If you are fit and want a long, active walk this trip is for you. During the longer daylight hours of summer, our boat schedule allows time to walk from Medlands to Apple Tree Bay along the main Coast Track, through a fascinating range of rainforest glades and panoramic coastal views.

Distance 17km (10.5 miles). Max. elevation 110m (360ft)

For the 2023-24 summer season, the Torrent River bridge is under repair. Therefore the high tide track around the Torrent Bay Inlet involves fording the river at the marked location on the track.

There are some slippery rocks so take care. It is advised to bring water shoes if you don't want to wet your hiking shoes.

If this trip is not available to book online, contact us to discuss alternative high-tide routes.

For extra time to relax and explore on a golden beach, we recommend our Swing Bridge, Bush & Beach, 4 hour walk.
