Three walking trails not to miss in Agnes Water!

1770 Headland and Lookouts: The 1770 Headland and Lookouts walk is an easy going 15 minute strut along the beach, the walk spans out over 6 kilometres and is incredible at low tide. You can enter the walk via the foot bridge that is located near the parking area at Tom Jeffery park at Agnes Water.
Duration: 15 minutes

Discovery Trail: The discovery trail is located 1 kilometre from the Endeavour Shopping Centre, there is also plenty of parking available behind the Museum on Spring road, Agnes Water.
