Description

Starting at the Pyramid Rock end of the walk it's just a short stroll down to a wheelchair accessible viewing platform. True to its name Pyramid Rock cuts an impressive silhouette against the Bass Strait backdrop.

The walk to Berry's Beach features wonderful and changing views, with plenty of wildlife spotting too. As you get closer to Berry's Beach you will see some development occurring, but this walk never loses its coastal charm.

There's a nice section of boardwalk early on in the walk, and refer to our photos when the path splits and you're not sure which way to head.

We found this walk to be longer than many websites state, with our GPS tracker putting the distance about 6.5km return.

Not pram friendly.
No dogs allowed.
Toilets are located at both ends of the walk at the car parks, however the Pyramid Rock toilets were closed for maintenance when we visited in early winter 2021
