Detailed Hiking Trail Guide:

The starting point for this walking trail is the Seaford Football and Netball Club Car Park located at 20N Seaford Road, Seaford.

From the carpark, cross Seaford Road and head south down Kananook Creek Walking Trail.

Right near the beginning, take the path that leads onto the sandy trail to your right.

Follow this path through several intersections from here and continue straight across any paths that may cross the trail.

Continue straight ahead back onto the sandy trail.

Continue straight ahead.

Basically, for now, you’ll want to continue going straight until you reach Nepean Highway, which will be a major road crossing.

Nepean Highway can be seen ahead through the bushes.

Cross the bridge to your right and then cross Nepean Highway and head for the toilet block on the other side of the road.

Crossing over the bridge over Kananook Creek.

This is the toilet block that you’ll be aiming for. Continue down the walking trail to the left of the toilet block.

From here we will be heading down Seaford Foreshore walk. Alternatively it is also possible to walk along the each also. We will include this option in another trail guide.

As with Kananook Creek Walking Trail, continue to walk straight wherever possible, that is, until you see traffic lights and a pub to your right across Nepean Highway.

Cross straight over the boardwalk.

Continue across Seaford Pier Car Park.

Just by a toilet block, you will see traffic lights and a pub across Nepean Highway. Cross at the lights.

There is a small road that heads down alongside the pub.

Cross Riviera Street at the bottom and take the asphalt path alongside the fence.

Cross Kananook Creek once again.

Just before you cross the railway line, look for the walking trail that continues to your right.

At Armstrong Road, look for the trail just to the right on the other side of the road.

Cross the bridge to the other side.

Cross over Station Street and continue straight ahead.

Continue past Seafotrd Train Station Car Park.

Keep to the left here to continue along Kananook Creek Walking Trail.

And to your amazement we are reentering Seaford from the back of the Seaford Football and Netball Club.

Continue up towards Seaford Road and turn left to return to the car park.

The car park is just up ahead to the left.
