Well-maintained walkway with stunning views of the light house and cape schanck. We went on a weekday in the off-peak season and it was fairly quiet. This is a must visit place if you're around mornington peninsula and only takes around 1-2hrs for a roundtrip....More

This is a must see to appreciate the views, fresh air, and back beach of the area. There are many steps but the boardwalk is very well kept and safe. Don’t forget your camera.

Really beautiful place to visit and take a nice walk. Although very windy and cold the walk down is pleasant. The walk back up on the other hand is more on the difficult side. The chair at the top of the stairs was placed perfectly.
