The Bridport to Bellingham 4WD traverse is a coastal track, offering opportunities for bird watching and surf fishing, with a number of designated, un-serviced campsites available along the route. Campfires are not permitted on beaches, bring a fire pot outside of fire restrictions.

The track is marked with orange triangles to be followed throughout the traverse. Sections along side of the track are signed to exclude entry into sensitive bird breeding sites.

These are to provide an area for recreational users to deflate tyres. An information panel with general authority to access the site is also provided at each car park.
