Description

Victoria, Women Want Adventure has another free community hike for you!


The walk is the Point Addis to Anglesea section of the Surf Coast Walk. This trail takes in all the colours of the coast - vivid ochre cliffs, brilliant blue ocean and dappled green heathland. See kangaroos, wallabies and wildflowers amongst low, wind-stunted forest. The walk begins at Point Addis (home of the elusive Rufous Bristlebird if you are a birdwatcher) taking us along the beach for 800mts before winding up and over the coastal heath along formed tracks. It is a one-way walk with a car shuffle from Anglesea to get us to the beginning at Point Addis.
