This walk starts from Cape Schanck and ends down to a breathtaking beach. This walk has a few stairs and elavations so its a moderate to challenging walk, but well worth it!

This section of the park was purchased from abutting farms in 1977. A guide to this nature walk is available at the Cape Schanck kiosk for a small fee.

Swimming is NOT recommended at this site as the the beach is unpatrolled and often hazardous due to strong rips and large waves, also be careful when walking on the rocks (even at low tide) as there can be sudden large waves, so it is advised you stay on the beach.

Note: Bushrangers Bay can also be accessed along Main Creek from the Boneo Road car park and picnic area (2.5km). This section of the Two Bays Walking Track provides fine views and passes through shady Banksia groves.
