Starting from the car park on Ocean Beach Road, Ocean Beach, this walk takes you past the Denmark Community Windfarm and Back Beach to Lights Beach and back via the Wilderness Ocean Walk Trail. This trail traverses the pristine coastal environment of Wilson Head Reserve, linking the Denmark Community Windfarm at Ocean Beach with Back Beach and Lights Beach. Along the trail you will experience panoramic views of the the Southern Ocean, Wilson Inlet, Monkey Rock and surrounding farmland. The trail has lookouts, seating and interpretive signage along the way, with amenities at both Ocean Beach and Lights Beach. The rugged coastline has many separate beaches ending in ancient granite rocks, dune cliffs, or stretches of hills rolling into the ocean, giving each beach its own character. The stunning coastal scenery and exposure to ever-changing weather provide a range of photographic opportunities on any given day. Watch out for the delicate shapes, hues and textures of various plants, as well as colourful displays of wildflowers in spring. The trail is a shared-use bitumen path. Please be respectful of others by keeping left and adhering to signposted speed limits. Although the gradient is mostly undulating, it can be quite steep in places. To protect the plants and animals and also for your own safety, stay on the formed trail and wear appropriate footwear. While the water might look inviting, swimming is not advised as the Wilson Head Reserve coastline is treacherous, with large waves, rips and unpredictable swell. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
