Rye Beachwalk

Situated on the popular holiday destination of Melbourne's Mornington Peninsula and nestled between Tootgarook and Blairgowrie is the coastal town of Rye.

Rye's main beach, fronting Port Phillip Bay, offers safe sandy beaches, a jetty, and attractive foreshore facilities. From 2001 to 2007, the foreshore was the venue of an annual sand sculpting event which showcased the talents of artists as they carved figurines and landscapes out of tonnes of sand. Point Nepean Road separates the wide foreshore from Rye's main shopping strip.

Around a kilometre west of the Rye Jetty is an outcrop of land called White Cliffs. At the base of the cliffs is a reconstructed old Lime Burners Kiln - a reminder of the mid-1800s when the extraction of lime was the area's primary industry. Scenic views along the coast can be enjoyed from lookout above the kiln.

Rye Jetty is one of the longest in the region, dating back to the 1830s.

My visit was on February 26, 2009, on a 2 km exploration of the beach between Rye and Tootgarook, and the Jetty.
