Mid-winter coastal hike - Point Leo to Shoreham




On Tuesday afternoon July 7, 2009, a beautiful sunny cloudless mid-winter day, I travelled down to the Westernport Coast, about 70 km south of Melbourne.

My destination was Point Leo, the start of an exploration of the coastline to Shoreham Beach, a return beachwalk of about 5 km - temperature was about 12 degrees.


By 3pm, the sun was very low in the northern sky, casting long shadows along the beach.

The views across Westernport Bay were superb, to Phillip Island, and further along the coast to Flinders.

See the complete set of Photos of my visit, which show features of my beachwalk, with many hounds, other beachcombers, a cyclist, the foreshore, the reefs, and the track leading up to the Shoreham Camping Ground on the top of the cliff.

The waves were not good for surfing on this day!
