If you haven’t done so already, check out our Great South West Walk hiking trail summary or go back to GSWW Section 9 – Simsons Camp to Monibeong Camp. Else, let us continue on with this tenth section of the Great South West Walk from Monibeong Camp to Swan Lake Camp.
Another long 17.5km walk along the beach. Look out for unique things as this stretch is mostly without rocks. Sand dunes abound. Get your tide timings right so you can enjoy an easier walk along the compacted sand low on the shoreline.
Walking along the beach may be considered boring for some but for every type of scenery, we must look for interesting things that make this scenery unique. As with anything we are looking at. One thing that caught my eye were the muscles tumbling in the waves and the pied oyster catchers chasing after them for a feast. The way the seagulls fly up and down the beach, watching their behaviour. And the other things that get washed up, like the very unique buoy barnacles…
Swan Lake Camp is an overnight walkers camp in Discovery Bay Coastal Park set amongst coastal scrub and heathland. The campsite offers shared table, seasonal tank water (treat before drinking), shelter and toilet. A shared fireplace is provided but fuel stoves are preferred by Parks Victoria.[adinserter block=”5″]
