After Point Yorke, cyclists continue down the South Coast Highway to Marion Bay, whilst walkers follow the marked walking trail and beach walks along the coastline.

The trail for walkers continues towards Marion Bay as a beach walk, with picturesque scenery and challenging treks – including rock-hopping and dune climbs.

Walkers & cyclists join up on the shared trail just before Marion Bay, and follow Walk The Yorke signage into the small coastal township.
