Shoreham Coastal Reserve, Clifftop Hike




On Wednesday afternoon June 24, 2009, I went down to the Shoreham Coastal Reserve, about 70 km SE of Melbourne, on the Westernport Coast.

I parked on the foreshore, then hiked along the beach, crossing the creek, up to the clifftop, through the tall pines, and along the Clifftop Track.

The Track ended at the entrance to the camping ground, which was my turnaround point.

Two viewing platforms provided astonishing panoramas towards Phillip Island (about 10 km distant) with the Nobbies clearly visible, and along the coast past Point Leo to Balnarring.

The hike was about 4 km (return).

The photos show the beach, the creek, the pine trees, the clifftop track, the access gates, the bushland, the viewing platforms, water birds on rocks, and the beautiful coastal panoramas.

See the complete set of Photos of my visit, which include a Google Earth view of the walking route.
