Since July 1, 2010, admission and car-parking fees have been abolished!
Two good walking tracks start at the main car park - these are the Boardwalk, and the Bushranger's Bay Track.
The Boardwalk descends for about 1 km along a wooden staircase, reaching sea level at the southernmost tip of the Cape. View points along the staircase offer marvellous panoramas of the rugged coastal scnery.
There is a change in altitude of 90m.
Pulpit Rock is nearby.
The Bushranger's Bay Walking Track goes easterly, 5.4 km to the Boneo Rd, not far from Flinders township. A side track leads to the beautiful Bushranger's Bay beach.
A third walking track starts just outside of the main car park, leading to the Gunnamatta Surf Beach, about 7 km to the north-west. A side track leads to Fingal Beach. Passing through bushland and along cliff tops, it can also be accessed from the Fingal Picnic Ground, about 1 km north of the Cape Schanck car park.
I visited Cape Schanck on October 10, 2010 - the Photos show the lighthouse, the suberb coastal scenery, and the 2 km (return) boardwalk.
See all of the Photos of Cape Schank Trip - I've included a reproduction there of an engraving made in 1875 of Pulpit Rock.
