George Bass Coastal Walk

8 km / 5 miles • Victoria, Australia

Named after the renowned maritime explorer, George Bass (a man hardly known for walking), this is a wonderful walk along clifftops and sandy beaches. Popular among locals, the expansive views of the cliffs, headlands, and the wild Bass Straight oceans are well worth it.

Victoria, 8 Km, Coastal, 1-3 hours

This is a wonderful walk along the clifftops and dipping down to the sandy beach. With expansive views of the cliffs, headland and wild Bass Straight oceans are well worth it. All the locals love this walk!

This walk is named after the renowned maritime explorer, George Bass, a man hardly known for walking. In 1797, he set sail from Sydney Cove and encountered this coastline while proving that a stretch of water did separate the mainland from Tasmania. It was a hell of a point to make, given he did it in an open boat only 8.7 meters long. It could be powered by its sails or by 6 to 8 oarsmen. It was a very adventurous journey and replicated in 1997, by a team of sailors from Sydney.
