Embark on a stunning coastal trail at Andersons Lagoon

If you are looking for a scenic day walk that won’t take longer than three hours, then this is the destination for you.

Only a 48 minute drive out of Ōamaru, Getting there is simple. Start by driving from SH1 in Palmerston and turning onto Tiverton St. From there, carry on down Goodwood Rd until you reach Bushy Hill Rd. Turn left and almost immediately turn right onto Anderson Rd. Park your car and cross the stile to reach the beach.

Once you have arrived, head north along the beach and you’ll come across a steel staircase. Please be aware that the coastline is mostly made up of cliff faces and while you can walk along the beach at low tide, you do so at your own risk. The recommended route is to climb the stairs and take the high tide route.

This path will take you toward the Shag River Mouth over the headlands, offering breathtaking coastal views and fresh sea air. Keep an eye out for seabirds and if you’re walking along the beach, make sure to maintain your distance from seals and sea lions that frequent this area.

The combination of seascape, cliffs, beach, and wildlife makes for an interesting and memorable day. Explore the surrounding area and discover all the sights and species that call Andersons Lagoon home. This destination is a must-visit for nature lovers, so add it to your list and start your Waitaki adventure today.
