Bushrangers Bay

The beautiful Bushrangers Bay comprises a sandy beach surrounded by basalt cliffs on the ocean side of the Mornington Peninsula. Swimming is not recommended at this site as the beach is unpatrolled and often hazardous due to strong rips and large waves.

This serene location is contrasted by dark and brooding headlands and wild waves that often crash onto jagged rocks guarding the entrance to the bay.

Bushrangers Bay can be accessed via a walk along Main Creek from the Boneo Road car park and picnic area (2.5km). This section of the Two Bays Walking Track provides fine views and passes through shady Banksia groves.

Alternatively, follow the 2.6km Bushrangers Bay Track from the Cape Schanck car park to see some of the best coastal scenery near Melbourne.

There is limited or no mobile phone reception.

Bushrangers Bay is a high risk area with many unpredictable dangers not visible to the eye. Swimming is not recommended, however if you choose to please take extreme care, know the conditions and your limits, this beach is unpatrolled and it is recommended to only swim between the red and yellow flags, never swim alone and do not let children out of site or reach.
