Bass Coast Rail Trail

Estimated time:



About this walk

Kilcunda has some of the most stunning coastal views in Victoria. On a clear day, watch the waves roll in while you walk along the rail trail above the beach. Walk as far as you like before turning back – the compacted sand track is approx 16 km and stretches to Wonthaggi.

Park in the Kilcunda carpark. There are toilets and a playground here too. Head east across the Bourne Creek Trestle Bridge and coastal sand dunes.  The trail has a few bridges that cross the Powlett River and its tributaries.

Caution: This beach can have large waves and strong rips. Consider the bay below the caravan park for beach play or nearby sheltered Shelley Beach. Always check the tides
