I visited this scenic area on Sunday September 26, 2010, following the Merricks Creek Track from the car park, then on to Tulum Beach.
About 1 km along the beach an unsigned foot-track goes on a boardwalk, then crosses the wide Merricka Creek over a bridge.
Immediately past the bridge is the start of signed Woodland Walk, which goes through the lush coastal reserve, part of the Coolart Wetlands, then passes the Somers School Activity Centre.
A style is crossed at a fence-line.
The Track then reaches the large suspension bridge over Merricks Creek, then comes out on to Tulum Beach.
Somers Beach is to the east - the return is along Tulum Beach back to the car park.
There are many interesting Tracks in the Coolart Wetlands, well worth investigating!
My hike was about 6 km total.
Good views across Westernport Bay to Phillip Island, Seal Rocks, and the Nobbies, and westerly to Cape Schanck.
