About this track


Stroll along the beach from Moeraki Boulders Scenic Reserve carpark and picnic area.

Alternatively, take the track directly to the beach from the cafe at the end of a private road. Or take a short loop track (150 metres) from the cafe to view the boulders from above. These tracks are suitable for pushchairs but not wheelchairs, as they start with several steps.
