This week I was looking for a hike a bit closer to home, so I chose the Bay Trail, a path that extends along Melbourne‘s Port Phillip Coastline. The trail begins in Spotswood and runs all the way to Seaford, 45km down Melbourne’s coastline. Cycling the entire trail would be manageable in a day but walking it, not so much. Of course, you can just choose a section that suits you and that’s exactly what I did. I chose to walk the Brighton to St Kilda section and back again. This was only a 13.5 km return hike but it takes you past three iconic Melbourne landmarks; the Brighton beach boxes, Luna Park and St Kilda Pier so it’s not a bad choice for tourists either.
