Two Bays walking track


This walk has a little bit of everything 
that I love about Australia.
The great outdoors;
forests, heathlands and grasslands, 
uplifting birdsong and of course kangaroos!

 Plus some of the best coastal scenery near to Melbourne.



Our walk was about 18km's in total 
 but of course we tell everyone it's well over 20k's!

To ensure we're not completely bush wrecked
we leave one car at the Cape Schanck light house car park, 
off Cape Schanck Rd, 12 Kms from Rosebud.



Before you leave in your haste to start the walk, 
stop by the Cape Schanck visitors hut for some useful maps.
Look out for the Mornington Peninsula National Park notes: 
discovering Cape Schank

 The other car we abandon at the intersection of Browns and Hyslops road,
From start to finish this walk is a photographers delight.
I just love these letterboxes! 


Letterboxes at the end of Hyslops Road
The walk starts along the gravel country lane of Hyslops Road 
for about 2km, or if you want to save time and energy,
 some clever walkers left their cars further along the road… 
but then they wouldn't have the same sense of achievement 
(or exhaustion) that we had!


After you reach Limestone Road
you enter Greens Bush.
This is a National Park so no dogs allowed!



You will find a wonderful eucalypt forest with 
mother nature in all her glory at every turn.



The track is well maintained and signed,
with small boardwalks over minor creeks



As we continue through Greens Bush, 
through the stands of eucalyptus, fern fronds and banksia,
we decide this is one of the nicest walks ever! 
It is about 10 kms until Rosebud - Flinders Road.

At Rosebud-Flinders road continue towards Cape Schanck
 along the Main Creek track 
signposted to Bushrangers Bay track.



Bushrangers Bay track to Cape Schanck will take about an 1 hour 

You get great views of Bushrangers Bay,
 and the coastline beyond to Philip Island. 



Out to sea, there is usually something to admire
 on the Bass Strait coastline 
with over 3000 ships manoeuvring around the Cape Schanck.



This coastal nature walk has information boards
which cover the fauna and flora, 
geology and social history of this unique area 

If you have an energy left once you get back to the car 
you can visit the main attraction here
the Cape Schanck light-station. 
Or take the free board walk to the rock platform 
and enjoy spectacular sea views.

You will see why Cape Schanck is a must visit,
one of the most popular places to visit on the Peninsula. 
Be careful of the waves, 
which sometimes come crashing over the boardwalk!

I hope you have enjoyed a little stroll in my part of Australia!

Friendship Friday!

Hello dear friends in Blogland. How are you doing? I am pleased to be here for Friendship Friday
I've had a great week and have well and truly settled back into my Asian life  where I am enjoying making new friends both locally and in here in the blogosphere.


I've had fun, I have joined a new group - the American Women's Club of Thailand.
Why the American's when you're a British Aussie? You may well ask. Well firstly they take anyone, these Expat women's groups really are not that fussy!

Well, except for the ANZWG Group where you need to be closely associated with Australia and New Zealand. I am, I have the passport and I have a family, home and of course an Aussie Crazy Poodle Down Under and I miss my Melbourne life terribly,  but my life in Thailand is more about meeting women from around the globe.

I have always had lots of American friends, I chat with many Americans via my blog...

... anyway they let this little bird in and she's chirpy about that!

The Expat - an A to Z of how not to make friends.

Ok, so I have now officially disgraced myself with the Americans…
A little bit of backstory, I moved to Bangkok eighteen months ago. It was a tricky move coming from the eight times winner of the ‘World’s Most Liveable City’ Melbourne, Australia to one of the most polluted, congested and the world’s hottest capital city… I gave up a meaningful job that I loved, in the Not-for-Profit sector to become a lady of leisure.

I threw myself into life here. I enjoyed the travel and getting to know Bangkok, and we had loads of visitors, but this year everything changed when we moved into our forever place in Bangkok. Hated it, nothing worked, was miserable, so had a great summer traveling the globe visiting family and friends instead.


Back in Bangkok, ready to immerse back into my Thai life, I am moving into a new apartment and ready to make some new friends, I joined a few expat organisations…
I know, I know being an Expat sounds glamorous, we have left the homeland, or in my case homelands, and j…

Brilliant Britain in the Spring

It has been a long, hard and bleak British winter which has made Spring  all the more delightful for everyone, and especially wonderful for me  arriving in the UK from the hot and humid tropics.

Of course, we arrived to for a quick visit to catch up with family and friends  to find everyone apologising for the dismal, cold weather  - not at all I said, I love it cool these days!

We've had a wonderful time, enjoying beautiful Britain in the Spring.  Everything seems particularly green this year.
The flowers are out to delight, we just love the tulips at Dyrham House and the bluebells woods are stunning. By the May Bank holiday weekend, the weather was being reported as a 28-degree scorcher. Yeah right, it was spot on perfect for me. 
I'm heading back to Bangkok this week where the temperature will be scorching no fib!

I have finished off my Blogging from A to Z (2018) Challenge. Thank you to everyone who has popped over to find me at my new space on the internet. In case you m…
