Tora Coastal Walk

Terms and Conditions

The Tora Coastal Walk (TCW) track runs over privately owned and public land. The land owners and/or managers give their permission to use the tracks on the basis that visitors have read and understood the warnings set out below and understood any additional risks that may have been outlined to them by the TCW at the time that they enter the tracks.

TCW have endeavoured to take all reasonable steps to make the tracks as safe as possible. It is for the visitor to determine the appropriate safety precautions, but they should include at least the following:

  • All visitors must have clothing appropriate for walking and weather – see “What to Bring
  • Visitors must stay on the walking tracks at all times
  • The tracks may be slippery after rainfall so precautions should be taken to prevent falls

All visitors enter the property and walk the tracks entirely at their own risk, and no responsibility will be taken by TCW or any employees or landowners whose land you cross for any losses, damages, injuries, sickness or expenses incurred by or in conjunction with walking the TCW tracks.
