Description

This walk starts at the carpark next to the Cottage by the Sea. Take the bush track that heads towards Point Lonsdale. Follow the winding track to an old fort which is super fun for the kids to play on and in. A big tower can be seen from the rooftop of the fort and it is great fun to jump off!

After the fort, the track begins to change and the trees become taller. It is a beautiful section and it feels like you are walking through a tunnel. There is no access to the beach after the fort and so you will need to continue to the Point Lonsdale rock wall to access the beach.

Walk along the beach until you reach the stairs that lead up to the carpark.
