Mortimer Bay Tangara Circuit

Route Summary      Easy coastal walk then ascends to hilltop and winds down past houses on large bush blocks.

Walk Description      

Approx. 11.3k loop from southern car park at Mortimer Bay  (Gorringes Beach) along the coastal reserve  until just before the neck is reached and ascend Collins Springs Hill off Palana Crt.  There is now an extension, at this junction before the ascent, that continues along the coast through the South Arm reserve. At the end of the graveled walking track an old wide dirt track heads back downhill and leads on the start of the neck beach. Just prior to reaching the main road can be a suitable spot to have lunch then return to the junction and go uphill on this part of Tangara Trail to Gellibrand Drive follow the track along beside it to Hidden Valley Track followed by Emu Track back to starting point.
