Walk Description

Walk forty metres south west and take Golf Links road up the hill.  Follow this to Mc Phillamy Road. Turn left and continue to a T intersection.  Look straight ahead and you should see through the bush, a gate with a management sign on it. Go through the gap alongside the gate and continue up the rugged track that initially heads west and then swings north over a knoll through a saddle and climbs to meet Coalmine creek track.  Turn left along Coalmine Creek Track and climb steadily to the tracks junction with Moggs creek track

Turn right, descending along Moggs Creek track for about 3 km.  The track then passes through a saddle before meeting a 4WD track on the second knoll.  Follow the 4WD track left for 400 metres to a marked foot track crossing the road.  Turn left to reach Moggs Creek Picnic area. (3.5 km)

Return along the track that brought you into the picnic area to a signposted junction indicating Ocean Views. Turn left along this pleasant walking track to a great viewing point overlooking the coast from Aireys Inlet to Big Hill.  Follow the track towards Moggs Creek and descend to the beach to stroll back to the start at Eastern View.

A Short Circuit Walk worth the diversion at the Moggs Creek Picnic ground if time permits at lunchtime.  Follow the signs.  They will eventually bring you back to the picnic area.

Its strongly recommended that you obtain a copy of the recommended Vicmap (see Further Information) prior to starting the walk.
