Why this Hike
This day hike is a fantastic morning or afternoon hike that sits right at the end of Inverloch which is one of the many beautiful coastal towns down the South Gippsland Coast. Being far closer to Melbourne than Wilson's prom, it is much more accessible to those in the city. This hike offers great views over Andersons Inlet while remaining relatively easy and not too long allowing you to complete it within a morning and get some lunch after in the centre of town. Being around 3.5 KM it may just be the perfect hike to add to your weekend down the Bass Coast or onto Wilson's Promontory.
Track Notes & Overview
Starting from the Inverloch Angling Club Car park walk along the beach away from town for a few hundred metres until you meet up with the Townsend Bluff Loop track, follow this track across Screw Creek and complete the look. Return back to the Angling Club to conclude your hike.
