ACCOMMODATION & DINING DESKTOP

Throughout this 100km circuit, we’ll put you up in really good quality accommodation in wonderful locations. The first two nights you stay at the Flinders Hotel in Flinders. The remainder of the nights you stay in the seaside village of Sorrento in the Sorento Hotel. All of the rooms have their own ensuite and are located in convenient locations to limit your travel time in a vehicle. On some of the days, you are walking in and out of accommodations from the track.

The Mornington Peninsula has a well-earned reputation for fine food and wine along with great health and wellness experiences. We’ve chosen accommodation that affords you the opportunity to indulge along the way. You won’t feel guilty either, with all the mileage you’ll have racked up. We suggest taking a day off to visit the renowned local wineries and hot springs or simply take in a long lunch.

Alcohol or drinks with meals are not included (except tea/coffee and juice on days when breakfast is included).

GENERAL INFO

This walk starts and finishes in Dromana, approximately 80km from Melbourne. If you travel by private vehicle you may leave your car at the Sorrento Hotel (your walk will finish in Sorrento). There are regular train and coach services from Melbourne to Frankston where we pick you up, although we can provide a private transfer from Melbourne to the track if you wish at an added cost.  Contact us for more detail.

This walk covers almost 95km averaging 18.5km per day. The walking is mostly easy to moderate with a small amount of more strenuous walking. There is some extended beach walking on soft sand, some scenic clifftop walks, undulating tracks, and the occasional short steep climbs. The walk is a relatively easy grade but a long one at almost 100km.

For what to bring please refer to Gear Advice on our FAQ section.

WEATHER

The summer months from January to February can be quite hot. March to May are usually delightful for walking, as is September to December. The winter months from June to July can be cool and occasionally wet but offer exciting beach walking.

Warning about tide times – this walking holiday includes some sections of beach walking, so you need to take into account the tide times when choosing a starting date. To check tide charts, go to the Bureau of Meteorology and select the pin for Around Western Port (Stony Point) and then Flinders Jetty for the location. Where you are walking in Gunnamatta will be 7 minutes earlier than these tide times. We can assist you if you need help understanding the charts.

INSURANCE

We require that you have adequate travel insurance against potential losses, damage or injury, including cancellation costs and loss of luggage.

For all trips that require international travel, you must have purchased travel insurance that also includes medical evacuation coverage.

We also charge a cancellation fee if you cancel your walking holiday after we have confirmed it to cover costs incurred from our suppliers and in the office.  See the FAQ section for more information.

INFORMATION PACK

For nearly 30 years we have taken pride in providing seamlessly organised walking holidays, but we know, even with that in mind, that you’ll have many more questions. You will receive a very detailed information pack and itinerary approximately 6 weeks out from departure outlining all the fine detail and much more.

    I loved every minute of this walk! Interesting walking tracks and awesome coastline, spectacular scenery and wonderful accommodation with very helpful, friendly hosts. The meals were beautiful. I could not have been happier with the overall experience.
