CHAIN OF LAGOONS

Lagoon beach from the Four Mile Creek coastal road.

 

 

 

Two young girls playing on the beach at Chain of Lagoons on a very warm summers day.  There is a popular camping ground with basic facilities by the beach.

 

Just south of St Helen's and Scamander, there is a choice in which direction to take.  The Tasman Highway winds it's way up the St Mary's pass to the town bearing the same name.  Quite a pretty drive.  The road is very narrow and care needs to be taken.  There is a short 10 minute rainforest walk at the top of the pass to a waterfall - Gray Mares Trail.  St Mary's is at the eastern end of the Fingal Valley.  The Esk Highway through the Valley provides the quickest access to the East Coast from the north of the State.  From St Mary's the Tasman Highway heads south through the very narrow Elephant Pass.  There is a very popular pancake parlor at the top of the pass as well as Blueberry Cottage craft shop nestled in a very attractive garden setting below the pancake parlour.  There is a short walk to some falls below the shop.  The road through Elephant Pass descends to Chain of Lagoons where it meets the coastal road.

 

An attractive option than passing through St Mary's is to take the coastal route past nearby Falmouth and Four Mile Creek to Chain of Lagoons at the base of the Elephant Pass.  The road beyond Four Mile Creek was only opened during the 1980's.

 

 
 

Little Beach.  A few kilometres north of Chain of Lagoons.  There is basic camping here also.  Just a few sites.

Looking south from the same location as above.
