Fishermans Track

Other tracks

Walking track

Enjoy a quick and easy walk to access the south coast from Anchor Bay. Enjoy the sounds of bellbirds and saddleback and the sight of grand old puriri trees through the bush section. To return you can backtrack to Anchor Bay but if you feel like a much longer walk you can continue along the South Coast Track or make your way down to Maori Bay (mid to low tide only). Follow the orange markers.

What to expect

Walking tracks should be suitable for people with reasonable fitness levels.

Walking tracks will:
  • Have easy to moderate grades with mostly compacted and drained surfaces.
  • Be well sign-posted with directional signs at track entrances and junctions and have safety signs where required.
Walking tracks may:
  • Have steps on excessively steep areas.
  • Have timber boardwalks and bridges over permanent wet areas and waterways.
  • Have seats and maintained views at areas of interest.


Theft from vehicles is not common but unfortunately can happen. You should take the same reasonable precautions you take when parking at other locations and remember to lock your vehicle and take your valuables with you.
