  • I found this beach so peaceful. Took about 20 mins to walk there as you need to follow a track. The beach was beautiful to sit at. There were large rocks and many shells.

  • A well kept secret. Significant heritage area, for indigenous cultural history; Site of Victoria's first cement works, built in the 1860s the remains of which can still be seen. Beautiful bird filled walks. Clear water, awesome rock formations! In 1854, geologist A.R.C. Selwyn reported a multitude of fossils in the limestone cliffs in a stretch of rocky bay beach between Mornington and Mount Martha aged between 10 - 15 million years. Pathways may be difficult for anyone with mobility issues.
  • Not the most picturesque beach you will find on the Peninsula but one with an amazing history.
