Dromana Bay Trail

Walk Difficulty The township of Dromana was proclaimed in 1861 and was well established as a seaside resort by 1881. It’s not hard to imagine the pier busy with steamships taking holiday makers and produce to and from Melbourne. The gravelled wide pathway offers an easy walk along the Dromana coast to the rocky cutting of Anthonys Nose - where Arthurs Seat falls steeply into the sea. The path continues through the boat ramp car park and then through the campsites and foreshore reserve through McCrae and past the tallest lighthouse in Port Phillip. It continues to wind through the tall banksia and tea tree with campsites on one side and the beach on the other to the pier at Rosebud (named after a shipwreck!)

The 30km Mornington Peninsula Bay Trail extends along the Port Phillip coast from Safety Beach to Portsea. This shared pathway offer walkers and cyclists great views as it winds its way along the foreshore reserve and is flanked by the beautiful sandy bay beaches and clear waters of Port Phillip.
Starting at the corner of Marine Drive and Point Nepean Rd, a gravel pathway weaves in between the trees on the Dromana Foreshore and takes travelers from the Safety Beach end of Dromana, to the McCrae end at the other. The Dromana pier and the Dromana Lifesaving Club are prominent points situated about half way along this trail and the playground and reserve at the Dromana Pier offers walkers a place to relax and grab some lunch, with many shops and restaurants directly across the road. The path continues through the foreshore reserve past the Visitor Information Centre towards McCrae. This section also includes some of of the Peninsula's famous colourful bathing boxes.

This walk is on a shared pathway for walkers and cyclists that is part of the picturesque 30km Mornington Peninsula Bay Trail along the Port Phillip coast from Safety Beach to Portsea.
