Kenny walk is a smaller part of the larger Port Macquarie Coastal Walk. And it can be done in a 1km loop if you’re looking for a quick coastal fix with maximum views. The most common place to start this loop seems to be at the end of Kenny Drive just right of Nobby Beach.
The walk is well paved with railings in most sections. The first 400 meters or so will take you along the lower part of the headland and If you keep an eye out you’ll most likely spot a rock fisherman or two.
As the track bends you will start to gain sight of Shelly Beach. There’s a staircase here that gives you direct access to the beach and allows you to continue following the ocean-side all the way to Tacking Point Lighthouse but if your here for the express walk then continue following the path upward until you reach Pacific Drive.
Turn right on Pacific Drive and then follow the road inward to John Dowes Park. There’s a playground, picnic tables, restrooms and a lookout here perfect if you have some extra time up your sleeves. Once you leave the park you’ll see the sign for Nobby’s Beach.
This is the last part of the walk that will return you back to your vehicle. As you descend the hill make sure you turn your head every now and then to capture a glimpse of the beautiful Nobby’s Beach. Nobby’s is also a Doggo fav, so if you’ve got a four legged friend that needs some sunshine and salty air bring them along too.
