Feeling a bit sick of winter? Come down to the beach at Beaumaris (only 20km from Melbourne CBD) for a reinvigorating walk to visit the Marine Sanctuary. Yes, I know it's cold and sometimes a bit windy, but a brisk walk along the beach on a crisp winter, blue-sky day makes you feel truly alive and reinvigorated. Plus it makes you look forward to those spring days that are just around the corner.

stretches along Beaumaris beach and provide a wealth of opportunities to do some rock pool hopping, bird watching and enjoying the views along the foreshore.


There is an abundance of bird life; on the water and on the rocks you can see black swans, terns, pelicans, cormorants and on the grassy wooded areas colourful parrots hop and fly with a purpose. There are fossil remnants on the rock platforms and if you venture further towards Black Rock you may see signs of ancient Aboriginal life.

The water views change every day depending on weather and time of day. From flat, mirrored morning impressions, sometimes accentuated by rising fog and spectacular, rosy sunsets this is a walker's and photographer's paradise.


Children will love this area, especially exploring the rocks and dunes but remember it is a sanctuary so no shell collecting is allowed. At the end of the walk, there is the Ricketts Point Beachside Cafe for a warming drink or indulgent piece of cake. If you venture further to Black Rock the Cerberus Beach House provides lunch with a view.
