Park
“Leaving the Cape Schanck Visitor Area car park, follow the sealed Cape Schanck Road for 600m back towards Boneo Road. Turn left onto the dirt track which leads into the national park. Follow the walking track through coastal Moonah woodland towards Fingal and Gunnamatta Beach. A detour circuit walk provides access inland to Fingal Picnic Area car park, drinking water and toilets. Further north a side track leads to secluded Fingal beach via a long path of steep stairs. If you visit the beach, be sure to return to the high track as through access to Gunnamatta is difficult along the beach, especially at high tide. The main track passes through dense coastal vegetation with three spectacular lookouts along the way. When the track drops down onto the eastern end of Gunnamatta Beach, continue along the beach to the day visitor area containing the Surf Lifesaving clubhouse, car park and public toilets. This walk can be completed in either direction, and can be extended as part of the Coastal Walk. Start/Finish: Gravel tracks and sealed road plus sand walking along the beach. Remember to return on the high track as through access along the beach is difficult at high tide. Swimming is dangerous unless lifesavers are present. Start Location: 420 Cape Schanck Road Cape Schanck End Location: Gunnamatta Beach Victoria Distance: 9 KMS Time to Complete: 5 HRS Facilities: Carpark, Lookouts, Public Toilet, One way, Walk, Walks Difficulty: Grade 4/5”
