We trek a few of our local paths regularly, and one of them we call our “Howrah Bluff” walk. Coco loves it, because there’s usually other dogs to meet, and the gravel track obviously has lots of deliciously good smells. We’ve discovered the correct name for the central headland joining Bellerive and Howrah beaches is actually Second Bluff, so that’s what we’ll introduce to you here.

You can make this walk as long or as short as you like… it’s part of the extensive Clarence Foreshore Trail. We’ve written about some of the other sections previously…

Second Bluff is the headland connector between Bellerive Beach and Howrah Beach. Either side of the hill you can walk on the sandy beaches or use the excellent shared cycling paths behind the dunes. The track is mostly level, and you will appreciate lovely water views when you’re elevated on Second Bluff itself. Happy walking!
