Description

There are great views from this clifftop track. To the right, Taiaroa Head and the mouth of Otago Harbour, and to the left looking up Otago's east coast. After following the cliff tops the track descends through regenerating bush to the more exposed Heyward Point. There are two starting points: off Aramoana Road, 50 metres before Pari Street and at the end of Heyward Point Road, which is off the road From Port Chalmers to Purakanui and Long Beach.

It was a Pilot station commanded by Captain Hayward 1882-1887 when the Catlins River was a busy timber port.
