Kilcunda Wildflower Walk (George Bass Coastal Walk)
3560 Bass Hwy, Kilcunda VIC 3995, Australia
You can travel to Kilcunda by bus, a bonus for us as we could enjoy the scenery and leave the driving up to someone else! The town is a draw card for foodies as the pub and general store both pride themselves on their gourmet offerings.
The walks are wonderfully refreshing as this side of the coast tends to be pretty rough, wild and on the days we were there - very windy so make sure you hang on to your hats!
The best thing to do once you're on your walk (apart from admiring the scenery) is to listen. You'll hear the birds twittering, the rustle of wild grasses and the splash of waves as they crash onto the rocks below.
We're told that local groups have worked hard to re-vegetate the area. Thanks to their efforts, birds populations have flourished, making the walks extra special.
The locations of the wildflowers are approximate only. This walk took us about 1.5 hours each way as the route has a few hills and there were plenty of reasons to stop and admire. Please check the Parks Victoria map listed above for more information. This map is readily available in Kilcunda itself (at the general store or at the motel).
