Winter coastal hike, Balnarring Beach to Somers

Monday July 5, 2010 was a cold midwinter day, so I headed down to Balnarring Beach, on Westernport Bay, 80 km south of Melbourne.

From the car park at the end of Balnarring Beach Rd, I followed the Coastal Heath Trail, past the Yacht Club, then on to Bayview Trail, reaching the Tulum Beach.

Tulum Beach is the eastern section of the Balnarring Beach, adjacent to the Merricks Estuary Bushland/Heathland and the Coolart Historical Homestead Reserve.

I followed the beach to the Merricks Creek Estuary, at Somers Beach. My return was along the beach, with a short detour to the Suspension Beach over the Merricks Creek. This was about 4 km in total.

There was action along the beach - beachcombing, walking, fishing, and hounds!
