Koonya Beach, Blairgowrie

Koonya Beach is one of several wild beaches on the Bass Strait coast section of the Mornington Peninsula National Park.

The 750 metre long beach has good access via two car parks at the end of Hughes Road, with a loop walking track from the road to the beach.

There is a lookout close to the car park which makes the area a good stop off point for ocean views. While dominated by rocks and reefs, Koonya Beach is one of the more open, sandy beaches in this section of Mornington Peninsula National Park, making it great for photographs and walking.

Koonya is most suited to surfing, fishing and beachcombing because of the dangerous conditions. Swimming is not advised as the beach is unpatrolled and can be hazardous due to large waves, strong currents and submerged rocky reefs.

No dogs allowed.
