A pathway that meanders between sand dunes so that a view either side of the 5km pathway is almost nonexistent. Inundated by cyclists who appear to believe the pathway was created solely for their purpose and for the establishment of speed or acrobatic records. Prepare...More

An excellent place to visit in summer with quick & easy access to the beach (patrolled). The picnic area is well maintained with very clean BBQ’s. In winter, good views of a turbulent sea. Highly recommend a visit.

It is always lovely going along the foreshore in Warrnambool, especially under sun, blue skies and aquamarine seas. How could you not love this?

A well-frequented concrete path used by walkers, cyclists, runners and skaters. Partly screened by vegetation on the beach side. Dog droppings can be an issue, but most dog-owners carry plastic bags or get them from supply-posts along the way.

This is a nice walk, though we preferred the walking on the west side of the breakwater at Warrnambool - we thought the coastline views there were more interesting than along the foreshore walk east of the breakwater.
