Gunnamatta Coastal Walk


The Gunnamatta Surf Beach is about 90 km south of Melbourne, in the Mornington Peninsula National Park.

I visited the Beach on March 21, 2009, on a 5 km (return) beachwalk to the southeast, reaching the rocks at the base of the rugged cliffs near Fingal.

The surf was up, with big waves, and the Surf Patrol was vigilant!

The main walking track from Gunamatta to Cape Schank follows the beach along the sand dunes, for about 1 km, where it then veers inland and continues along the cliff top, passing the turn-off to Fingal Beach.

The coastal views towards the Cape Schank Lighthouse were spectacular!

Note that there is an admission fee of $4.40 per car.
