Mornington Foreshore Walk

Walk Difficulty This 5-6km return walk takes you along the best of Mornington’s seafront. You will see the Mornington Harbour – probably the best in Port Phillip – bathing boxes, the Tanti Creek estuary, and the lovely Beleura Cliff Path that winds up from the beach to finish near the Mornington Golf Club.

Be sure to walk out to the end of the Pier before you start and see what the fishermen are catching. Follow the path next to the harbour past the boat ramp. Follow the seawall to the end of the car park and then veer right up the footpath that cuts up to the top of the cliffs. (Don’t go onto the sand).

Follow the path along the top of the cliffs on Schnapper Point Drive for 100m, before taking the track off to the left along the top of the cliffs and past a car park. Stay at the top of the cliffs until you reach a picnic ground/BBQ, then go down some steps and past the public toilets to a track that disappears up into the tea tree, away from both the beach and The Esplanade. This track continues through the coastal scrub, past one or two lookouts, to some steps to a small car park at the mouth of the Tanti Creek.

Go through the car park, cross the footbridge, follow the sea wall and through another car park onto the beach at the Life Saving Club.

Walk along Mills Beach past the colourful bathing boxes for 700m.

Immediately after the last bathing box, turn right up the wooden steps that lead to the Beleura Cliff Path. This track sidles up the cliffs for 600m and offers brilliant views across the Bay to the city skyline and along the coast. The path here is nicely graded so relatively easy to climb if you go slowly. It finally emerges at Caraar Creek Lane.

At this point, you retrace your steps back along the coast to the Harbour, or you can explore this pleasant tree-lined residential area and work your way back to the beach and the Harbour.
