Distance: 20.5km (7 hours)

For this section there are two different start points. Walkers start from Gleesons Landing walking north and following the beach for some distance. The trail then alternates between walking trail and beach walk, providing a variety of coastal experiences.

Cyclists will head back out along Gleesons Road, turning north to follow the Marion Bay Road, and then left at Point Annie Road, where you will meet up with the walkers once again.

Leaving Point Annie, walkers will follow the beach almost all the way to Corny Point lighthouse, while cyclists will travel along the cliff tops.

This area of the coast is known to contain some premier surfing beaches. Keep a look out for our friendly dolphins who also appreciate a good wave!

From Corny Point lighthouse, the trail follows an easterly direction into Corny Point township.

There is no access to water along this section of the trail, so make sure you carry your daily needs with you.

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.


Walk the Yorke is a linear trail covering approximately 500kms, and all distances mentioned are one way unless otherwise indicated.
