Point Leo to Flinders Beach Walk


Point Leo to Flinders Beach Walk



Start from Point Leo surf beach car park and walk along the beautiful beach to Shoreham.  As the sea changes from surf to calm water between flat reefs the beach curves past grassy dunes to the low tree clad cliffs fronting Shoreham camp ground. The cliffs become steeper and more rocky but after passing below an iconic pine clad headland you reach Shoreham Beach, a half moon of sand crossed by Stony Creek.

Once past the headland at the southern end of the beach you leave civilisation behind you for the long walk to Flinders. The land between Flinders and Point Leo was once a single large pastoral property.   It has since been broken up, but into large enough parcels to retain the beauty of the area. The coastline is a mix of remote beaches and reefs with high cliffs dropping away from the grassy rural land.

The walk finishes at Flinders Beach with it's deep water pier.  A stroll out to the end of the pier is a great end to the day.

Some of the beach between Shoreham and Flinders is covered at high tide so be sure the tide is out before undertaking this excursion.  

The distance between Point Leo and Flinders along the beach is around 10kms.   You should carry food and water and consider arranging to leave a car in the Flinders car park for your return trip.
