Ackers Point Walk

Amble on road & track (8km / 3hrs return)


Pass Lonnekers Bay and Leask Bay on this enjoyable amble from Oban before hitting the road end and track out to Ackers Point.

There’s a beacon and viewpoint at the point with excellent views out over Foveaux Strait, and if your lucky, you might see a blue penguin or a ‘muttonbird’ (titi).
