We started the Barwon Heads Bluff Lookout walk at the carpark overlooking the mouth of the Barwon River and the bridge crossing.
The area is covered by Coastal Moonah Woodland shrubs and plants that help stabilise the shifting sands and provide shelter for echidnas, possums, bats, birds and insects.
Out at sea, the deep blue ocean offered no trace of the final resting place of 25 ships in the Shipwreck Graveyard. Information boards told of the names and dates the ships were lost.
The sandy track was fairly even and offered beautiful views across Bass Strait.
Wooden stairs led down to the beach, where the waves crashed against the rocky outcrops as the tide came in.
The historic Clubhouse of Barwon Heads Golf Club can be seen from the track. The original building was erected in 1924 and is a beautiful landmark of the area.
