Glorious coastal scenery from Mt St Paul, Sorrento

The Mornington Peninsula Coastal Walk extends for 28 km from London Bridge (Portsea) to Cape Schanck.

It offers spectacular views over Bass Strait and the rugged cliffs, with sidetracks/stairways leading to interesting bays, beaches and coves.

On May 10, 2009, I explored a 4 km (return) section of this route, starting at the car park at the St. Paul's Rock carpark, and ending at the Lookout on the summit of Mt. St Paul.

Mt St Paul was discovered and named in 1802 by an early explorer, who also gave his name to nearby St Paul's Rock.

The height of the summit is 40 m above sea level, but the 360 degree views are amazing!

My visit included side trips to Jubilee Point, Diamond Bay Beach, and the Bay of Islands.

Whilst the actual walking distance of this Section is not long, it can be physically demanding as much of it is in sand and dunes.

I have actually completed the entire 28 km (56 km return!) Walk in 2008-2009, and am now revisiting some of the Sectors which offer the greatest photographic, scenic and physical appeal to me.
