George Bass Coastal Walk

George Bass Walk looking from Punchbowl towards Kilcunda

The popular George Bass Coastal Walk is a cliff top walk that stretches from the outskirts of San Remo at Punchbowl Road, to the Bass Highway (just opposite the hall at Peppermint Road) in Kilcunda.

The walk is approximately seven kilometres long and takes an average of 2 hours to walk one way. The walk offers spectacular views of the coastline and follows the route of the explorer George Bass' epic voyage of discovery along the southern edge of the Anderson Peninsula, over 200 years ago.

An average level of fitness is required for the walk, as it includes using stiles over farm fences. More information is available on the Park Notes produced by Parks Victoria (November 2010 - PDF 431kb).

The George Bass Coastal Walk now links into the Bass Coast Rail Trail so it is possible to walk from the Punch Bowl in San Remo all the way to the centre of Wonthaggi.
