loontitetermairrelehoiner, Swansea – Great Short Walk

​​Right in the heart of Swansea is a walk that offers spectacular views across the bay to the Freycinet Peninsula and Schouten Island. Named after the local band of Aboriginal people, it’s an easy 2.3km circuit track. It leaves from Waterloo Beach, skirts the coast around Waterloo Point, then reaches Schouten Beach. Waterloo Point became the site of the first European settlement in Swansea in 1827.
The track passes through a shearwater (muttonbird) breeding area. These remarkable migratory birds use burrows in which to breed. They can be seen at dusk in the summer months when they return to their burrows after feeding at sea.

Grade – 2
Distance – 2.3km
Surface – Hardened or compacted surface.
