Are you fit and looking to take on the iconic 26km Two Bays Trail Hike? A challenging day hike exploring coast to coast, following the trail from McCrae to Cape Schank with a relaxing stable side dinner at St Andrew's Brewery post-hike.
We start early in the morning in McCrae, walking up the steep staircase to the top of the cliff and onto Bunurong Track, the start of the Arthurs Seat State Park. The winding track climbs the steep hillside to Seawinds Garden. Here we can stop for a toilet break before continuing along the Two Bays Trail.
The track continues past the adjoining Kings Falls Track and leaves the State Park at Waterfall Gully Road. We walk through local streets, crossing small reserves before joining the Mornington Peninsula National Park section known as Greens Bush. As an experienced guide, this section is easily navigated.
Greens Bush is a rarely visited section of the Two Bays Trail walk. Its picturesque space holds the perfect place to rest, tuck into supplied lunch and enjoy a guided sensory meditation, designed to anchor you into a Mindfulness practice. Spot Kangaroos, echidnas, koalas and kookaburras throughout our day and learn some history of the region as we traverse the trails.
The trail continues crossing small creeks and alongside Main Creek before crossing Boneo Road towards Bushrangers Bay on its way to Cape Schanck where our minibus awaits to drive us to St Andrew's Brewery for a celebratory dinner for post Hike Dinner is booked for 5:30 pm in the refurbished horse stables offering a unique atmosphere to celebrate our day hiking.
