Walking & hiking

Mornington Peninsula

  • Cape Schanck Boardwalk, Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia

Set out on two feet to explore Mornington Peninsula along rugged bushland tracks and bayside boardwalks.

Shoreline strolls and hinterland hikes
Don your walking shoes, grab a map and do your best to cover the 100 kilometres or more of walking trails included in the official Mornington Peninsula Walk. Prepare yourself to tackle the walk in its entirety, or embark on one of the shorter components to take in a diverse range of landscapes. Discover beautiful secluded bays and rugged headlands, pounding surf beaches and bushland, and lookouts with immense views.

Pound the safe and scenic walking tracks for the best perspectives of Mornington Peninsula's national and state parks, including Point Nepean, Arthurs Seat, French Island and Port Phillip Heads Marine National Park.

Take a leisurely shoreline stroll or hinterland hike, or undertake the epic two-day Arthurs Seat to Cape Schanck trek. Spot birds, kangaroos and koalas and be impressed by a series of stunning vistas.

Walk to the west
Have a change of scenery and stride along the boardwalk through Westernport's fertile mangroves and mud flats to the Bittern Coastal Wetlands, where lively birds await.
