OVERVIEW

Unleash your adventurous streak on the Mornington Peninsula and at the same time enjoy European idyllic coastal living. The section of the walk that follows the coastline is stunning, but it is the variety that really underpins this walk. The changing scenery as you walk the Two Bays track from Dromana to Cape Schank, through the endemic forest, makes this one of the best and most underrated walks in Australia as well as the easiest to access from a major city in the country.

Why not enjoy a day at the hot springs or tour the wineries as an add-on to this excellent walk. Or simply enjoy a relaxing day at the beach, either on a tranquil and very safe bay beach or for the more adventurous the wild back beaches.

Importantly, at the end of each day there’s a hot shower, a 2-course meal and a comfortable bed waiting for you. If you want to lux it up then there’s the luxury of staying at Jackalope and enjoy fine dining and a 5-star stay. No matter what trip you chose you will always wake up relaxed from a good night’s sleep and a cooked breakfast so that you will be ready and relaxed for a great day on the track.

climate/weather

The climate in the south of  Victoria is temperate. Lots of rain in winter as to be expected.

The Mornington Peninsula self-guided walking holidays are available year-round. However, October through to May is a more popular time to walk.  There no one around almost all of the year so it doesn’t matter when you walk from that aspect.

Please see our What To Bring section in FAQ’s for more information.

For more information please see the Bureau of Meteorology’s information concerning average temperatures and rainfall levels throughout the year.

 

when to walk

September to November is great for walking this track as this is wildflower season. Summer can be warm, but still excellent time to walk as you can a dip in the ocean or at the hot springs. It then cools down by March. Autumn is also brilliant for walking in this area as the days are cool and crisp and the weather is very steady with less wind. This trip is available all year round, but in the winter months between June to August there can be some rain,  making walking more challenging.

 

walking fitness levels

The tracks are well are in good condition and well maintained, so we would class them as quite good. There is limited walking on beaches, but all the rest of the tracks are flat and very solid underfoot. Your walking fitness level will not be challenged by incline. However, as you can see the walks are all reasonably lengthy and thus you will need to be reasonably walking fit and capable of walking over 21kms a day.

walking essentials

It is important to come prepared for walking the Mornington Peninsula walk. We believe that what you need to bring is determined always on how long you intend to walk on the track, what time of year you are walking and whether you are going to stick around to enjoy the peninsula after the walk. What is outlined here is what we expect our walkers to have with them if they are doing one of our walks.

  • walk notes, map and map case
  • picnic lunch packed in insulated container (when supplied)
  • quality waterproof jacket with a hood
  • warm jumper or jacket
  • sunhat
  • sunscreen (at least 15+)
  • 1 to 2 litres of water
  • first aid kit
  • toilet paper
  • some money
  • mobile phone (note that reception is not available in all walk areas)
  • personal insect repellent & bandaids & small container of salt mixed with rice grains

Whether or not to carry some of these items may depend on the prevailing conditions.

  • waterproof overtrousers
  • warm hat
  • sunglasses
  • camera
  • binoculars
  • notebook and pen
  • matches
  • small torch
  • walking stick
