Bushrangers Bay, Bushrangers Bay,
This is a spectacular trail skirting rugged coastline by the waters of Bass Strait. It was originally scheduled for 29 March, but had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 lockdown.
GRADE | LENGTH | TYPE: Medium 13 km circuit walk.
We follow the Main Creek Trail from the car park to Bushrangers Bay. The eucalypt forest gives way to shady thickets of coastal banksia and then to an isolated sandy beach at Bushrangers Bay. From there we follow the trail to Cape Schanck. We’ll have lunch near the 1850s Lighthouse. After lunch, we return the same way and then hopefully, time permitting, can have take away coffee and cake from the Flinders Bakehouse.
