Getting around

Marline Valley is located one mile north-west of Hastings on Queensway (B2092). Access and parking are difficult due to necessary roadside barriers. The simplest way is to park in Napier Road or nearby and cross over the busy Queensway to pick up one of the footpaths.

There are many paths in the reserve, but the valley is steep and can be muddy. There are several gates and steps.
