Bittern Coastal Wetlands Trail

Hastings is a town about 60 km south of Melbourne, situated on an inlet on Westernport, a major port and important environmental area. Hastings has multiple marinas and is home to many recreational boating activities.

I visited Hastings on Tuesday September 28, 2010, exploring the historical jetty, the boat harbour, and the Bittern Coastal Wetlands Boardwalk.

Many pelicans congregrate near the jetty, waiting for scraps of fish given to them from local fishermen, and the nearby Fresh Fish Shop!

Hastings is the starting point for the 26 km Westernport Walking/Cycling Trail which extends to Balnarring.

There were excellent views over the mangroves across the Hastings Bight towards Long Island and Long Point.

My hike was about 6 km total - there are several intepretative signs along the Boardwalk, describing various features of the Wetlands and their inhabitants!
