Two Bays Walking Tracks
The Two Bays walking track from Dromana on Port Phillip Bay, to Bushrangers Bay near Cape Schanck, is the longest continuous walking track on the Mornington Peninsula, stretching for 26km.
If you’re very fit and accustomed to long walks, you could complete this 26km walk in a day. It takes you through two beautiful parks – Arthurs Seat State Park and Greens Bush - before arriving at popular Bushrangers Bay near Cape Schanck on the wild Bass Strait coast.
Alternatively, you could spread the walk over two or three days, and organise a guide if you’d like expert insights on the landscape and wildlife.
You’ll walk through a great variety of habitats as you cross the Peninsula, including steep gravel sections around Arthurs Seat and gently undulating tracks through Greens Bush, the largest remnant bushland on the Peninsula. There are also short walks from the main track.

ROSEBUD SOUTH STREET SECTION
After leaving Arthurs Seat State Park at Waterfall Gully Road, Two Bays Walking Track meanders through several streets to a shire reserve, Gardens Road, Hyslop’s Road and then through the magnificent Mornington Peninsula National Park.
Situated between Arthurs Seat and Cape Schanck, Greens Bush is the largest remnant of bushland on the Mornington Peninsula. The area contains a variety of vegetation communities and is a wildlife haven, making it an excellent place for nature walking. Peaceful surroundings and the natural beauty of the bush make the area excellent for walking, picnicking and observing nature. Explore the walking tracks that weave through Greens Bush and discover the many different vegetation communities in the park - from eucalypt forests to fern gullies, heathlands and grasslands.
There is lots of birdlife in Greens Bush. Look for wrens, honeyeaters, parrots and birds of prey such as the Black-shouldered Kite and Wedge-tailed Eagle. In the early morning or at dusk, you can often see kangaroos feeding in the open grasslands. Black Wallabies prefer the forest and are well camouflaged in the shadows with their darker coat. However, most of the mammals in the park are nocturnal. As the light fades, listen for the soft twittering of Ringtail Possums or Sugar Gliders. The Little Forest Eptesicus Bat makes a higher-pitched call as it searches for insects, usually eaten on the wing.
