Lonely Bay Walk

Lonely Bay Walk is as it's name suggests, a quiet, lonely stroll through untouched wilderness, overlooking stunning views of Lake Tyers, from the opposite side of the township.

With the sounds of the surf crashing onto Ninety Mile Beach you can wander through diverse vegetation ranging from open woodland to paperback thickets and riparian rainforests.

There are many walks in this area. Watch out for signposts along the way.

Cherry Tree Burnt Bridge:

This walk follows the waters edge to Burnt Bridge with BBQ and picnic facilities.

Silvertop and Toorloo Arm Rainforest:

Plenty of Silvertop Ash and Blue Gums dominated by Lilly Pilly and Pittosporum. Small bridges and boardwalk section.


THese walks can be accessed by driving north from Lakes Entrance, heading to Nowa Nowa.

Lonely Bay:

Heading towards Nowa Nowa on the Princes Hwy, turn right into the second turn-off to Burnt Bridge Road.

When you arrive at the non-existent bridge, the Lonely Bay Walk leaves from here.

Cherry Tree and Silvertop walks:

Turn right into the first Burnt Bridge Track. This track stops at the non-existent bridge (the opposite side to Lonely Bay). Before you get to the bridge, turn left into Cherry Tree Track. Walking tracks are marked along the route with picnic tables throughout.

Always consult detailed maps or visit the Visitor Info Centre for more details.
