About this track

A gentler walk for those not keen on walking up or down the Sandfly Bay track sand dune. The Ridge Road track crosses private farmland and down into Sandfly Bay via sand dune habitat. Once you reach the sand dune ecosystem, the trail follows a gently meandering stream down to Sandfly bay.

Getting there

Access to the Ridge Road Track is off Ridge Road. From Sandymount Road, turn right down Ridge Road and follow it until you reach a sign posted parking area. The track starts 50m up from the parking area.


Know before you go

The trail crosses private property and any gates need to be left as you find them.
