Week Away : 2020

Hi all members,

I am thrilled to be preparing the Club’s Mornington Peninsular walks for our week away. Walkers of all abilities will enjoy the spectacular walking trails, views of peaceful bays, wild ocean coastlines, tranquil bush and local history. Being a coastal region, the elevation of most walks is easy to moderate, usually the distance of the trail determines the track grading.

The fourteen-kilometre Sorrento Ocean Beach to Bridgewater Bay walk, as well as the Bushrangers Bay to Fingal Beach track are on the walk’s program. Both walks offer spectacular cliff top views of the coastline, rock platforms, small bays and birdlife.

Walkers will also enjoy the hilly terrain around Red Hill and Arthur’s Seat National Park with views of rural properties, majestic old pine trees, wetlands, wildflowers and wildlife. All walkers will have the opportunity to undertake a section, or the entire challenging twenty-six kilometres, Two Bays Walking Track, the longest continuous walking track on the Mornington Peninsular from Dromana on the Port Phillip Bay to Cape Schanck.

A twelve-kilometre circuit track around Port Nepean will be explored. On this circuit, walkers can read about Australia’s military history, a historic quarantine station, and Harold Holt Memorial while enjoying the stunning views of coastal vegetation and bay views of Port Phillip Bay and Bass Strait.
