RouteDunwich - Myora - Amity - Cylinder Beach (N1) - Main Beach - Tazi Road - Dunwich
NotesFrom Amity it's possible to cycle along the Northern Beach, although you normally have to detour to avoid dead trees on the beach near Amity and the sand can be soft at times other than low tide. The scenery around Point Lookout is especially nice with smaller beaches and headlands.
