George Bass Coastal Walk - Western Sector from San Remo

The popular George Bass Coastal Walk is a cliff top walk that stretches from the outskirts of San Remo at Punchbowl Road, to the Bass Highway (just opposite the hall at Peppermint Road) in Kilcunda. It is about 120 km south of Melbourne.

The turn-off to Punchbowl Rd is about 2 km east of San Remo township, off the Phillip Island Tourist Rd.

The walk is about 7 km one way, and offers spectacular views of the coastline, following the route of the explorer George Bass' epic voyage of discovery along the southern edge of the Anderson Peninsula, over 200 years ago.

An average level of fitness is required for the walk, as it includes using stiles over farm fences. Some sections are rather steep, such as the rough access side-track down to the Half Moon Bay Beach. Flies can be a nuisance!

I did about 6km (return) of the western section of this magnificent walk January 25, 2009, starting at the Punchbowl Rd car park, and reaching the marvellous secluded Half Moon Bay beach.

See my album of all of the Pictures of this trip, which show the scenery, the cliffs, the track, Half Moon Bay Beach, the Punchbowl, other walkers, and me.
