Remember to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch.

Dotted with grass trees and with myriad birds winging across your path, this walk through coastal heathland is a delight.

The paths are wide and offer sweeping views over Timber Beach, Ghosties Beach and Moonee Beach – bring the camera for some picture-perfect shots. In late winter and early spring, you’ll also witness a blaze of colour as wildflowers bloom across the heath.

The real highlight of this walk reveals itself as you descend onto spectacular Moonee Beach. You’ll feel far from the madding crowds on this private sandy shoreline. Spend the day swimming or snorkelling in the turquoise water and don’t forget to explore the protected rockpool area.
