Balcombe Estuary, Mount Martha to Fishermans Beach, Mornington
6.9km one way
A walk with an easy gradient suitable for all ages.
Starting the Balcombe Estuary Mount Martha, bushy paths winding along clifftop with views over Port Phillip Bay and back to the south of the Mornington Peninsula. Ships can be spotted along the way. Below the path you pass Hawker Beach, Craigie Beach, Birdrock Beach and Dave Beach before coming to Fossil Beach which has stair access. Continuing along the path you pass Fosters Beach. Next point of interest along the way is Linley Point with excellent views over the bay and along Fishermans Beach with many ubiquitous beach houses. The Lilo Café provides a welcome stopping point to order a drink or have something to eat and enjoy a welcome rest.
The return journey provides the option to retrace your steps along the clifftop walk, or take a slightly quicker route of the footpath along the Esplanade.
“Walking is one activity for everyone to make exercise as part of a healthy body. In this walk we can see nature, feel wind, and see the fantastic view of the beach, points, ferries, birds, and even the buildings of Melbourne City and the houses of the community around the Mount Martha. In this walking place along the cliff top there are signs to show the people where some places are dangerous. You feel warm when the sun arises in the east. This activity can be participated in by anyone from the local community, and we really enjoyed the walk even though we are tired. “
