Number 16 Beach - Mornington Peninsula National Park

Number 16 Beach is part of the Mornington Peninsula National Park, in the muncipality of Rye, about 70 km south of Melbourne.

It is between Dimmick's Beach and the Rye Ocean Beach.

The origin of the name is unknown!

It is reached from a small car park at the end of an unsealed road off Tasman Drive.

A sign at the car park gives directions to the beach, which is at the bottom of a track across the sane dunes and a staircase.

I visited this nice beach on Wednesday November 18, 2009, for a 3 km coastal hike which took me from the cliffs at a point known as "The Divide", then easterly towards the Rye Ocean Beach.

There are unusual rock formations along this section of the coast, and great views towards Gunamatta and Cape Schanck.

  1. According to information from Parks Victoria rangers, it gets its name because it is the 16th bay from Port Phillip heads.
