Tuhawaiki (Jack's) Point

Duration: 01:00:00
Distance: 5000  Loop

We love our coastal tracks in Timaru, and this is one of the best.

This walk follows the coast past the historic Tuhawaiki (Jack's) Point lighthouse, and offers spectacular coastal views.

You can walk, run or bike and it's also dog friendly. Please ensure any dogs are under control as you may see penguins and seals on the rocky beach.

You can start at either the Scarborough or Ellis Rd end. There is more car parking space at the Ellis Rd end.

It's a 5km return trip if you walk to either end, or just walk out to the lighthouse and back for a shorter stroll.
