Distance: 25.3km (9 hours 30 minutes)

A more challenging but very rewarding section, the trail from Foul Bay to Marion Bay has plenty of photo opportunities.  

There is a shelter with seating and a small water tank located just east of Foul Bay, at the Foul Bay campground.

Departing from Foul Bay, the trail is a shared walking / cycling trail. Heading towards Point Yorke, stop at the Kangaroo Island lookout. As its name suggests there is a great view across Investigator Strait to Kangaroo Island.

Cyclists leaving Point Yorke will travel along the South Coast Highway to Marion Bay, while walkers will follow the walking trail and beach trail along the coastline. Meehan Hill lookout is the next stop, and cyclists are encouraged to detour towards the coast for this fantastic photo opportunity.

Cyclists will return to the road and continue to Marion Bay.

Walkers will survey some of the best scenery on the Peninsula as they trek along the beach, as well as experiencing some rock hopping and dune climbing.

The trail is once again shared by walkers and cyclists just before Marion Bay. Follow the signs into the township.

Marion Bay Caravan Park, located a short distance from the jetty, has been designed as a bush camp. Feel right at home amongst the shady native trees with just a short walk to the sheltered Marion Bay beach.

Please refer to our Trail Notes for further information. 

Walkers please note - the times indicated on the topographical maps are estimates only.   They are based on an average walking speed of 4 km / hour.  However some sections may take 3 to 5 hours longer due to the varying terrain, with an average walking speed of as low as 2 km / hour.  The terrain includes beach walks with soft sand, dune climbs and rock hopping.  Please base your walking times on your own fitness and ability.
