Exploring the Somers Reefs - Westernport Bay

On Saturday afternoon November 14, 2009, I went down to Somers Beach, on Westernport Bay, about 70 km south of Melbourne.

From the main car park at the General Store I followed the Somers Foreshore Nature Trail, through coastal bushland, reaching the reefs.

The tide was out, exposing the vast reefs, which I explored.

From there I continued along the beach to Sandy Point, at the perimeter of the HMAS Cerburus naval facility.

Access to the beach beyond Sandy Point is prohibited.

My return was along the beach to the staircase leading up to the carpark and viewing platform - the hike was about 5 km total.

The reefs offer plenty of opportunities for rockpooling and reef exploring.

There was plenty of water action - yachts, jet boats, kayaks, swimming, paddling, cycling, sandcastles and fishing for toadies!

There are excellent views across the Bay from the Nature Trail.

See all of the Photos of my visit!
