beautiful!

really nice view

always a beautiful easy walk, rainbow fall is amazing

Recommend for confident people with good fitness level, most is moderate but some parts that are very uneven, steep and rocky which caught me off guard. Beautiful scenery and very peaceful walk overall!

Incredible waterfall!

Nice walk on a sunday afternoon

Steep trek down to base of waterfall. Lots of rock stairs but a fair amount of loose dirt to navigate down. Very shady with all the lush ferns surrounding the track and you could very easily have a dip in the shallow pool under waterfall. Picnic area up top with BBQ and a camping area with toilet just down the road. No dogs allowed as it’s National Park.

Approx 14km, beautiful walk, make sure to take shoes off to enjoy the walk along the beach.

Nice easy walk with some spots for bird watching. Lovely scenery - a relaxing way to spend a couple of hours when you want a casual stroll outdoors.

Currently closed due to the recent bushfires.

This was a fun and unexpected hike. The bat's were amazing and need to be seen to be believed. There are parts of the track which are signposted as do not enter. About 200m overall. Enter at your own risk! Track is predominantly along the river and though there are some frequented parts, there are plenty of isolated parts too. The not so distant thrumming of the motorway will be with you about half the entire hike. A decent pace will take you under 2 hours

This walk is along a section of a bitumen called Defence Road in Point Nepean National Park, which is also used by a shuttle bus. There are much nicer walks to take in Point Nepean National Park, and you can get a map of them from the Parks Victoria website or from the Information Centre at the old Quarantine Station near the entrance of Point Nepean National Park. This Park is a former military training site, and there are unexploded bombs in some areas. All visitors must therefore keep to official signposted walking tracks. Do not go off the main trails and do not enter areas that are closed or marked 'private'. Use the Park Map as your only guide.

There is no Butler's Trail in Point Nepean National Park so this walk is wrong. It appears to follow a private track which borders an area closed off due to unexploded ordinance (bombs). As this is a former military training site, it is irresponsible and dangerous to walk along private tracks, especially when there are many good signposted tracks in this Park. The most direct route to Point Nepean from Wilson's Folly Walking track, is along Defence Road, which is bitumen, so quite boring. To find the most interesting and signposted tracks in this lovely National Park, pick up a free Map from the Information Centre at the former Quarantine Station, a 10 minute walk from the end of Wilson's Folly Track (turn left onto Defence Road, then take the first right onto Ochiltree Road then follow signs to the Quarantine Station)

This is a beautiful walk along a wild ocean beach, with barely a house in sight. If you don't want to walk the return leg, you can turn off at Portsea surf beach, and walk 10 minutes along Back Beach Road to Point Nepean road where you can catch the metro bus (myki card) no. 788 back to Sorrento. Alternatively, this lovely walk can be extended by 6km, to include Point Nepean, a stunning lookout at the end of the peninsula. At London Bridge, take the Wilson's Folly Walking Track (1 km) over a low ridge into the Point Nepean National Park. Once in the Park, it's an easy 5km walk to Point Nepean, with interesting sights along the way, such as a former Quarantine Station, and old forts and tunnels. If you dont want to walk the 5km to Point Nepean, you can hop on the regular shuttle bus within the Park (pay the driver) which links with the metro bus no. 788 (myki travel card) back to Sorrento at the Park entrance Park maps are available at the Information Centre at the Quarantine Station. To walk back to Sorrento from Point Nepean National Park, you can return to the ocean beach either by Wilson's Folly Track, or the Back Beach road to Portsea Beach. An alternative route is the foreshore walk along Port Phillip Bay from Portsea to Sorrento, accessed from Franklin Road, off Point Nepean Road next to the Portsea Camp.

Nice trail with several creek crossings nice to see elements of the Gold Rush era. Will do this one again :)

Great city trail

Afternoon stroll. The creek is surprisingly pretty and fast in some sections.

The north and eastern halves are the most interesting sections. The walk along the dam conversely is quite boring. The north and east sections are cooler woodlands. Factor that in your walk if hiking on a hot day. I did the loop clockwise: dont miss the first turn and follow the bright orange arrows and poles. The view from the north east knoll is superb.

Nice easy walk - the kangaroos make this walk special as it’s flat and straight.

Beautiful 2 hours back and return family friendly walk (our kids are 10 and 13). Don’t forget to bring your swimsuit and sturdy shoes.

Did this walk on 19 Jan 2020. New to nature walks. There are a few trails here so I did the Old Quarry first because I’d read about it being the best - very enjoyable. People were enjoying a swim after their walks - I might do this next time I come as it was certainly hot enough for one.
