  • It's not an easy undertaking, make sure you take food, water and sunscreen. If you want it easy,take the bus, if you want to exercise and contemplate the beautiful scenery, plan the walk carefully  more »
  • This place is is a must for those seeking solitude and peace and quiet. Go on a week day .. even quieter.
  • Such a beautiful, scenic, peaceful day out. History, fresh air and exercise all in one 😊
  • Absolutely breathtaking! It is a must stop destination if you are down this way.. just remember to bring shoes because it is a long walk or you can catch the bus for $5
  • Great place to take the kids exploring and lean about history in a fun way, Take your bikes and enjoy some healthy out door living and enjoy the beach / Bay views. A real great way to lean about the history of Port Melbourne.
  • Worth the walk. Lots of tunnels, great fun for kids. A view of front and back beaches. Would be better if more old gunnery was in place.
