Bushrangers Bay, Mornington Peninsula – Bushwalking Victoria
A steady, flat walk amongst coastal Banksias leads the way to Bushrangers Bay. Sweeping farmlands fringe Main Creek on the left as you approach with the Mornington Peninsula National Park on your right. Native birds are prolific amongst the flowering Banksia as the noise of the road recedes into the background.
Bushrangers Bay has a hint of Walkerville South about it with plenty of rock on the beach and looming cliff faces. A large rock anvil can be climbed on the left side of beach with worthwhile views of the waves crashing below.
Cape Schanck is another 2.5kms further West along the coastal track from the beach. Sweeping views of the lighthouse point can be enjoyed along the way, with an easy walk to Pulpit rock at its base.
