Woodland Hike, Somers Coast

The Woodland Hiking Track, Somers Coastal Reserve, is reached from the car park at the end of Balnarring Beach Rd, about 70 km south of Melbourne.

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.
