Balnarring to Merricks Coastal Hike

Balnarring Beach is about 70 km SW of Melbourne, a coastal community on Westernport Bay.

It is popular for fishing, boating, swimming, beachcombing and rockpooling.

I visited this nice beach on Anzac Day, Saturday April 25 2009, for a beach walk to Merricks Beach, a return hike of about 6 km.

The tide was in, so the reefs were not exposed, but there were good views along the coastline as far as West Head, Flinders, and across the Bay to Phillip Island.

Part of the walk passes through the interesting Balnarring Bird Sanctuary, adjacent to Robertson Park.
