CAPE LIPTRAP & WALKERVILLE

Stretching along the coast from the sand barrier of Point Smythe to the sheltered waters of Waratah Bay, Cape Liptrap Coastal Park has strikingly beautiful scenery.
The coastal park transforms from being a peaceful coastal area to wild, windy and awe inspiring in stormy weather. Whatever the season, Cape Liptrap Coastal Park & The magnificent light house are worth exploring.

Walkerville is a tiny village on Waratah Bay in south-west Gippsland, about 190 km southeast of Melbourne. Walkerville is divided into North and South – Walkerville North provides beautiful views across Waratah Bay to nearby Wilsons Promontory, and at low tide provides access to spectacular rock pools. Approximately 100 metres beyond the end of the boat ramp marks the beginning of a walking trail up the cliff that separates the two Walkerville settlements.

A gravel road leads to Walkerville South ends with a beach access ramp similar to that of its northern sister settlement, and a sheltered bay frequented in the summer by families swimming, fishing and jet-skiing in the quiet pristine waters. The remains of the lime kilns and caves from the 1920’s at Walkerville South are well worth a visit.
