This is a very family friendly walk away from traffic, along a quiet, flat, gravel path, with great views across Corio Bay to the You Yangs, remnant coastal wetland and bird life.
Find your way to the Point Richards car park (if coming by car, turn left off Portarlington Road 500m before the township).
The entrance to the walk is just past the jetty and the Marine National Park board in the car park. The track runs between Rambler's Road and the water's edge.
You can continue walking further on the track or simply turn back to return to the start point.
A nice open play area, with a miniature train track (runs seasonally check beforehand if it's running).
Some good information about the Port Phillip Heads Marine National Park - it's history, local inhabitants and aquaculture.
In 1989 a 16 year old boy was drowned trying to save his brother.
Watch out for fellow bike riders. If you're bringing your pooch, please keep your dog on a lead.
The scenery is very pleasant along Rambler's Walk. There are various indigenous plants to admire along the way.
Portarlington used to be a small seaside town. There are now many enormous houses as a result of more recent developments.
Some well established tall trees have been planted by residents.
There are several benches on this walking track. Take your pick from one of these two charming blue seats and gaze out to the You Yangs and beyond.
Salt bush and noonflower.
These areas provide protection from strong coastal winds for birds. You might see seagulls, pelicans, cormorants or ducks. These areas are at risk of inundation with storm surges and rising sea levels
Look to the south, between the houses and over to the hill for our local olive grove!
