Walk Description

The walk is located in one of the most scenic areas of Mornington Peninsula National Park and includes hiking through forests, along cliffs and on beaches. We start at the Bushrangers Bay carpark and walk about 2.5 km to the coast along the Two Bays Walking Track.  We continue for a further 3 km to Cape Schanck lighthouse and walk down to the boardwalk towards the cape and Pulpit Rock.
