Wolley's Coastal Reserve - Bittern

Woolley's Beach reserve is a large coastal park on Westernport Bay, 60 km SE of Melbourne.

It is located at Crib Point, in the municipality of Bittern, near the town of Hastings, and extends about 3 km to the Stony Point Ferry Terminal.

The main walking track passes through lush fern forests and bushland, with good views across the mangroves towards French Island.

I visited the park on September 9, 2009, completing a 6 km hike.

The Navy Submarine Museum is nearby, along with the decommissioned Oberon class submarine HMAS Otama.

The signed remains (fenced off) of Bill Woolley's underground cool-room are just off the beach, near Crib Point, which are of local historical interest.
