Climb: 36 metres (as measured by RunKeeper)

On a day with such fantastic weather, this walk offered a great contrast of beach and bush walking. The walk followed Mordialloc creek, starting near a cricket ground with a game in full swing, before heading towards the beach past all the moored boats, then back inland along a more bushy path.

The hardest part of this walk was working out how to cross Nepean Hwy. (There is an underpass as I found out too late!) The scenery, especially along the beach, was quite pretty. At the beach I walked the length of the pier, where an older woman nearly hit me with a fish she was reeling in, and up the beach path to the lifesaving club.

Overall the walk did feel quite urban as there was almost always buildings visible, but the beach section made up for it.

The boat ramp and adjacent carpark were super busy due to the great weather.

I'm not sure if this area was a boat graveyard or maintenance area, but there were plenty of land based boats lying around. This is along the Nepean Hwy.
