Walk Description

Situated between Arthurs Seat and Cape Schanck on the Mornington Peninsula and only 90 kilometres from Melbourne, Greens Bush is the largest remnant of bushland on the Peninsula. Surrounded by farmland, the area contains a variety of vegetation communies, making it a wildlife haven and excellent place for nature walking.
This walk links two shorter circuits with a portion of the 2 bays walk.
There are several highlights along the trail; eucalypt forest mixed with spectacular stands of grasstrees, pockets of Melaleuca thickets, picturesque fern gullies, coastal heath and open grasslands.
Note this walk does not have any public toilets available.
