Or so it seems. A special, special place of mine here on the peninsula is the stunning Bushrangers Bay, and I assure you, upon your visit you too will feel like you're on the edge of the world in some magical, quiet place. This hidden stretch of beach is surrounded by the rolling cliffs of Flinders- starkly green and uniquely beautiful in their own right. It is home to countless kangaroos, cows and the odd snake, which I may or may not have even stood on during a Bushranger's visit not so long ago- but that wild adventure is a story for another day.
If you're an avid hiker, lover of nature, or after an adventure to bring a little light and laughter into the motions of your week, then this walk is right up there in my recommendations. There is limited parking, and you need to be prepared for some exercise- this isn't a casual five minute stroll, but rather a few kilometres into the national park, winding your way down to the ocean. Keep your eyes peeled for the wildlife and definitely have your camera handy- you never know what you will bump into!
This walk is one of my favourites because it gets the blood pumping, it's out of mobile range and is set in arguably one of the most beautiful spots on the Mornington Peninsula. It's quiet, peaceful and allows you to truly take a deeeep breath, and refresh your mind, body and soul. The beach itself is like no other- white sand, the bluest water and little hidden treasures that reveal themselves depending on the tides. A little creek cuts it's way to the ocean and rockpools emerge themselves from the waves. It's truly an untouched, natural part of the world we are so lucky to have only a short drive from Mornington.
So, enjoy the beauty that is Bushrangers and fall in love, deeper again, with our home.
