Rosebud to McCrae Coastal Hike

An interesting 3 km (return) coastal walk is between Rosebud and McCrae Beach, 70 km SE of Melbourne, on Port Phillip Bay.

The walk starts/finishes at Tom Salt Park, and follows the beach.

The McCrae Lighthouse is dominant, and an information board at its base gives comprehensive information about its origin and features.

The tallest Lighthouse in Port Phillip Bay, it's 33.5 m high and was built in 1873, and erected at this site in 1884.

It was decommissioned in 1994.

Other boards at the base of the Lighthouse provide details about the history of McCrae, Walking Tracks, Maps, and information about local historical attractions.

In peak-summer, this beach becomes very crowded, and thousands of campers set themselves up along the coastal strip.

My visit was on Thursday afternoon October 14, 2010.
