South Arm Circuit

Tuesday 12th February 2019

South Arm
I needed a quick little walk today and South Arm fitted the bill nicely.
I parked at the end of Bezzants Road in South Arm and walked to the beach and headed north. There was a walk of about 3.0 kms along a beach and then small rocks to round Icehouse Bluff and on to Shelly Beach. This section needs to be done at low tide as there is only a narrow section to walk on and there are high sandstone cliffs in some sections. As it was I had to walk in the water in a couple of sections. The weather was not ideal with wind squalls and some showers.

Musks Beach





Shelly Beach
I walked along Shelly Beach before picking up the track that goes around Gellibrand Point.
