Walking from Tantalus to Onetangi Bay

I'm wondering if there is a walking trail from Tantalus Vineyards to Onetangi Bay? I've heard there is a "wine trophy" trail in Onetangi, but not sure if that would somehow link up to Tantalus. Any advice?

Hi Lisa,

Without knowing which vineyards the wine trophy trail includes, I think you are best to walk along Onetangi Straight, which is the main route linking Onetangi with Ostend, and continue to the beachfront this way. There isn't much pedestrian leeway along this busy road, so it's better to walk towards opposing traffic until you reach the Onetangi petrol station.

There is a sort of short-cut when you get to the Onetangi petrol station which takes you along Seaview Rd (turn left) until you reach the signpost for the walkway/steps that lead down to the beach. Quite a steep track though. You could always bus back to your accommodation or to the ferry terminal.

Once you get to Tantalus, ask the staff there about the wineries walking track.
