Right in the heart of Swansea is a walk that offers stunning coastal scenery. Named after the local band of Aboriginal people, this track takes you from Waterloo Beach to Shouten Beach.

The track passes through a shearwater (muttonbird) breeding area. These remarkable migratory birds use burrows in which to breed. The birds can be seen at dusk in the summer months when they return to their burrows after feeding at sea.
