Fosters Beach

Between Craigie Beach and Linley Point is a three kilometre section of rocky coast dominated by 20 to 30 metre high sandstone bluffs topped by a continuous foreshore reserve. A busy main road runs along the top of the bluffs behind the beaches and there is limited off street parking.

Fosters Beach in Mornington is a fairly narrow, steep, rocky, west facing beach in the shape of an arc. It is only 80 metres long and the cliffs are steep and unstable so keep to the tracks. There is deep water close inshore at high tide and rips are present when waves are breaking. The main beach area is all rocks and not conducive to bathing.

Fosters Beach is a dog-friendly beach and is designated as leash free 24/7 for the whole year. However, always refer to signs at beach entry points as changes to dog restrictions may be made at any time by local authorities.

Access is via via the Fossil Beach walking track from a small car park opposite #633 Esplanade and restricted to a steep slope down the bluffs. After a hundred metres the track branches off to the north to access Fosters Beach (also known as the Fossil Beach Leash Free area). Note: you can also choose to continue further along the track to the equally isolated Fossil Beach.
