    South of Charleston along SH 6 the track is clearly sign posted 700m South of the bridge across Four Mile (or Tiropahi) River.

    A short unsealed road leads to a car park/camp site. Cross the river and follow the path of the tramway to the river. Cross the river and follow the bed down stream until you get to Wagon Creek - on your left. Follow up stream until it disappears into an underground cave system.

    Walk out following the river bed all the way or scramble up the true right bank and pick up the track again.

    This is a full half day walk so make sure you pack a bit of food & water. Being around stoney areas you will want to have good walking shoes or boots.

    There are some good sea walls to fish from in this area. A short distance South of the bridge across the Nile River is a sign posted turn off to the cemetery. Used by the first settlers, it is now a historic reserve. A narrow track in the north-west corner leads to the coastline. A tricky climb down gets you on the pebble beach, but only when the tide is out. The track is about 500 metres long and ends at some low sea cliffs/rock walls where good fishing can be had.

    A word of warning though - at high tide the sea can break over the rocks - BE VERY CAREFUL THAT YOU DON'T GET WASHED OFF THE ROCKS.

    Ladys Bay is a very nice spot to stop and dip your feet in the Tasman Sea. Access is easy and the bay is small with protection from rocks jutting out in a semi-circle in front. There is a nice grassed area before the bay where a picnic can be easily spread.
