Farnsworth Track and London Bridge - Portsea Coast

The Farnsworth Track runs between London Bridge Carpark and the Portsea Ocean Bridge carpark, in the Mornington Peninsula National Park, 80 km SE of Melbourne.

About 4 km return, it offers spectacular clifftop views of the rugged coast over Bass Strait, extending from Cape Schanck in the SE, to Fort Nepean in the NW.

I hiked this Track on Sunday afternoon May 17 2009, starting at the London Bridge Carpark, then along the ocean beach and dunes, up the long staircase to the eastern end of the Track at Portsea, and back to London Bridge via the clifftop and coastal bushland.

There are two Lookouts along the cliff-top track.

I also did the 2 km (return) beach hike to London Bridge, making a round trip of about 6 km.

The weather was rough, with huge waves, strong winds, and a lot of spray!

The Farnsworth Track was completed in 1987.
