Altona Beach foreshore to Altona Coastal Park
Start at Altona station on the Werribee line. Walk towards the foreshore along Pier St. Turn left (west) into the Esplanade and follow the beach path until Surf St. The path leaves the Esplanade and follows the water past Altona Yacht Club and Altona Angling Club and through the boat ramp car park off Altona Road. Continue over the footbridge, past Altona Sports Club and Altona Bowling Club. At the end of the beach is Altona Coastal Park. It is the former site for the Willliamstown Racecourse where only the ruins are left now with one lonely palm tree. A 4-metre sculpture called Requiem for a Champion commemorates the location of the former third largest racecourse in Victoria, graced by Australian thoroughbred champions, including Phar Lap.
