Breakwall Waking Path
The breakwall is a lovely walk beside the Hastings River, the skate park end of the walk can get very congested. Absolutely love walking along the ocean and watching the waves break against the shore. This is a great walk along the ocean and Port entrance.
A walk along this iconic breakwall, provides you with stunning views of the Hastings River towards Town Beach. The colourful grafitti rocks that lead you along the breakwall are a collage of messages, tributes and memories from visitors and locals. Sunrises and Sunsets are magical from the breakwall and the sight of dolphins playing in the river are a very regular occurrence.
Starting from Town Green, the breakwall is a popular starting point of the nine kilometre Coastal Walk out to Tacking Point Lighthouse at Lighthouse Beach. It is a favourite spot for locals and visitors to take a leisurely stroll and spot marine life, marvel at watercraft coming in over the bar of Town Beach, chat with people who are casting their fishing lines and just take in the beauty of this picturesque location.
There are chairs along the path and many big flat rocks to sit on and gaze out over the river and to the sea. A skate park is at the end of the breakwall where you will see energetic and entertaining skills of bike, scooter and skateboard riders. Nearby are covered picnic tables, barbecues and a kiosk with toilet facilities.
