Beachcombing hike at Balnarring, Westernport Coast

Suspension Bridge, Merricks Creek Estuary

Merricks Creek Estuary

On a bleak, overcast and cold Sunday afternoon, June 28, 2009, I ventured down to the Balnarring Foreshore Reserve, Wssternport Coast, about 70 km SE of Melbourne.

This is one of my favourite places, with a long sweeping coast extending from the Balnarring Point in the west, to Somers Beach, in the east.

I left the car at Robertson's Park, next to Balnarring Beach, and beach-hiked along the foreshore to the interesting swaying suspension bridge at Somers. This crosses the Merricks Creek estuary, and leads into the Coolart Wetlands and Woodlands.

Nearby is the large Somers Childrens' School Camp.

This was my turnabout point, and I safely negotiated the return hike along the coast, trying to avoid huge nipping barking hounds taking their owners for beach walks!

Unfortunately, a heavy winter mist had come down over the Bay, blocking the normally good views to Phillip Island.

The hike was about 4 km return. See the full set of Photos, with giant dogs, and an image taken around 1940!
