We were lucky with the weather the walk was fantastic and the coastline is dramatic and would be quite wild on a windy wet day

The 2.5 klm walk from light house to Bush Ranger Bay is enjoyable. Need to do return same way unless car is available at end of walk. Bush Rangers Bay is a pleasant area and can also be accessed from main road with much shorter walk

The Cape Schanck Boardwalk and the surrounding walking paths offer breathtaking views of the sea and the coastal lines of the area and a beautifully located lighthouse. The walking tracks themselves are quite easy to navigate and does not require much effort. The journey takes you to a number of viewing platforms and beaches that allow amazing vistas of the...

This is such a beautiful boardwalk experience that takes you on a journey to one of the secret parts of Victoria. You will need to watch your step whether it's full daylight as it can be a little tricky and for some a little steep. The rocks on the shore towards the end of the boardwalk are gorgeous and when...

We were pleasantly surprised when we decided to stop at Cape Schanck! The boardwalk isa 750m walk (mostly down) and then there is the walk up after, but the views are... More

This is a must if you are visiting the Mornington Peninsula. I've been here several times over the years and can't recommend it enough. Please not that it is easy to miss if you are not paying attention as there's only limited signage.

I had been down to the Mornington Peninsula before, but googled this and thought it looked interesting. When we got here the views were spectacular and the board walk enables access to some absolutely spectacular scenery. Just didn't know why we didn't know about this earlier! I'd say it's a must see to make a bee-line over here and follow... More

Wild and windy walk. Fantastic views especially of the lighthouse and coast...but you will need a rest half way back up the steps.
