Another local "walk" - couldn't have been better - the sunshine was warm and the sea blue and tipped with waves.

A fantastic walk to see the local scenery and enjoy the outdoors. Not too difficult, but great views of the area.

One of The Best Parts of Mornington Peninsular

After the many months of Covid-19 lockdown in Melbourne, my wife and I were eager to drive out for hiking, fresh air and sunshine. We stayed at the RACV Resort nearby for 2 nights.

We enjoyed the scenic views while walking on the boardwalk and also visited the lighthouse at the top of the hill.

A Melbourne must see
Nov 2020 • Family
This area is rightly popular all year round. A lot of times the car park is overflowing onto main road. The walk down the boardwalk involves a lot of stairs with flat boardwalk areas giving you a rest until next lot of stairs (I managed easily carrying my 3yo daughter down stairs).

To get to boardwalk you walk around 200m along dirt track.

Once you get to bottom of boardwalk you can either turn left or right

Left: takes you to a lovely rocky wading area that has so many little crabs hiding under the rocks

Right: takes you to a heavily pebbled cove that is popular with adventurous who love to climb out on the rocks

TIPS: bring plenty of water as it’s thirsty work

AMENITIES: toilets available at car park

PICNIC AREA: large grassed area at lighthouse or up the road at Fingal Picnic Area

Great time exploring the area with the kids and trying to guess how many steps down to the water. Rock pools and scenery were amazing.

Great views from the top or the bottom

Pre COVID19 February
I went here on a day that held all seasons in one visit - very typical Melbourne weather! [I have not put any photos from the board walk as the surprise should be yours!]

The carpark had a view tourists buses and some cars, but still plenty of spaces to park. There are toilets there and you must take your rubbish home with you.

You have a choice of walking along the top part of the boardwalk alone, which I can tell you is spectacular. Or you can do this and then go down the 80+ steps to the beach and walk along there which is also worth doing for the most spectacular views.

Tips:
1. Wear study walking shoes
2. Swear a hat / sunscreen / insect repellant / ample water
3. Wear layers as the weather is changeable
4. Take a camera

From here you can also do the lighthouse walk, the observatory point walk and visit the museum [though it was closed when I went]. There are also spots for picnics. Worth heading here once this all finishes.

Amazing coastline
Jan 2020
We visited over the Australia day weekend. Very busy for car parking but not too crowded on the path. The weather on this day was perfect no wind and brilliant blue sky. The walk is suitable for all ages. Lots of steps to the beach below can be challenging but you can still take in the view from up top which provides a great perspective of the area. It is free to do the walk which is another positive.

Spectacular and wild!

We did this on a very hot day when it was well over 36 degrees but even on parts of this walk, the blustery wind in the late afternoon meant a jacket was required. I probably would not recommend this in Winter. It would be very cold. It is a spectacular boardwalk out to the beach where pulpit rock is situated. On the beach (when you get there) is large boulders covered in moss. It is a memorable walk. You need to do a lot of steps to get out there but it is truly memorable.
