South Coast of Phillip Island, clifftop hike to Redcliff Head

The South Coast of Phillip Island, some 120 km from Melbourne, offers some magnificent cliff-top scenery across Bass Strait and the surrounding region.

I explored this wonderful location on Tuesday April 21 2009, and my visit started at the Pyramid Rock car park, about 3 km south of the Back Beach Rd, not far from the Grand Prix racing circuit.

Pyramid Rock is a superb rock formation jutting out into Bass Strait, and is best viewed from a Lookout about 200 m from the car park, reached by a pathway and stairway.

From the carpark, I then walked to the amazing Redcliff Head along the formed Redcliff Head Track on the cliff top, passing Storm Bay and Red Bluff.

At Redcliff Head there is a windswept Lookout, offering amazing panoramas along Bass Strait, with Wild Dog Bluff to the west, and overlooking nearby Berry's Beach.

Total walking distance was about 5 km.

In my opinion, this clifftop walk is among the very best on the South Coast!
