DESCRIPTION OF WALK:

Bushrangers Bay comprises of a sandy beach surrounded by basalt cliffs, the perfect location to soak up the atmosphere and get outside for a women's community walk. We will be starting at Bushrangers Bay and walking to Cape Schanck // return. This serene location is contrasted by the dark and brooding headlands and wild waves that often crash onto jagged rocks guarding the entrance to the bay.

Bushrangers Bay can be accessed from the Boneo Road car park and picnic area. This section of the Two Bays Walking Track passes along Main Creek and provides fine views and passes through shady Banksia groves. You also get views over the surrounding farmland and into the creek valley below. We will be returning to our cars at the Boneo Picnic Area.
