Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What travellers are saying
- What a beautiful view along the boardwalk. There is good parking lot and toilets there. Theres a few pathways that lead to this boardwalk that has spectacular views - one that is more steep than the other. The day i went was so windy it was all I could do to keep my beanie on my head lol loved that. U can walk out to the beach altho be careful about it. I wouldnt say its well accessible but I did see a lady walk to the boardwalk with her walker which was nice altho Id say it would be hard as its not flat. The boardwalk has loads of stairs and can be tricky for people who might be queasy on heights. U can access part of the Bushrangers Bay Walk from the car park which I want to try out one day.Written 21 August 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Great walks and park atmosphere. Not too sure about the small dark reception and caged animals on display.
Enjoyed the shorter wetlands walk and will return for the longer walking track.Written 9 July 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- I did the Boneo Road Carpark to Bushrangers Bay to Cape Schanck section of the Two Bays Trail twice during May 2021. Really enjoyed it both times, it is an easy 6 kms walk one way (around 12 kms return) and did the return in around 2 hours.
The views on this section are superb - ranging from quiet bush tracks to rugged coastal cliffs and beaches (see my 4 photos with this Review). There are a few small inclines and declines, but other than that it is fairly flat. There is one steep decline and incline as you pass over a creek somewhere in the middle. There is also a few steps to go down to Bushrangers Bay. I took my lunch with me and had it at Bushrangers Bay. It is quite isolated with no mobile reception. This is worth doing it, if you pick a day with reasonable weather.Written 23 May 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- A relaxing place to go for a walk. Not too many other people and is also dog friendly. The board walk is generally well maintained.Written 12 February 2023
- go for a drive, and go around the bay. It's well worth it. This is NOT on the tourist trail and probably should be. It's a local secret. Without a car though you couldn't do it. It's a decent day drive with stops for food in between.Written 14 July 2017
- My wife and I drove to the first car park, off Cape Schank Road, where we parked our car under the shade of a large tree and walked the 600 metres to Fingal Lookout, which is a separate walking track, to enjoy the scenic views from that higher vantage point.
After that, we drove our car to the second car park, 200 metres away and parked our car under the shade of a large tree at the Fingal Picnic area. We walked the 1.5 km track to Fingal beach which has shade from trees for most parts of the walk.
The views along the track and the views on the beach are very scenic. The climb up the steps for the return journey takes a bit of effort but is very good for exercise, especially with the fresh air.Written 1 April 2022
- This is one of the best parts of Coastal Victoria for hiking due to the spectacular scenery, second only to The Great Ocean Road.
My wife and I stayed at The RACV resort for two nights and went hiking on two consecutive days to enjoy the exercise, fresh air, sunshine and magnificent views during the perfect cool autumn weather.Written 16 May 2021
- Firstly, we went there to reconnoiter potential fishing sites - trout and perch. The National Parks people put new fish stocks in Bittern Reservoir (and nearby Devil Bend Reservoir) a couple of times each year. What we did find was that both Reservoirs have extensive walk and bike tracks - the Bittern Reservoir has a circuit track which is about 2.5 kms. We went most recently in June and the track was very muddy and slippery - but okay if you walked on the grass edges - no matter what you will end up with clay mud heavily packed on your boots - if you are riding on the mud make sure you have a mudguards fitted on your bike! The circuit doesn't give easy access to the reservoir shoreline - if you attempt walking through the bushes then careful of the shoreline mud which is very slippery. As far as fishing goes there are really only two smallish areas that fishing is permitted. I'd recommend wearing waders as the shoreline is very shallow and you need to cast a long way. The nearby Devil Bend Reservoir is far more accessible and "comfortable" and scenic - with car parking, picnic areas and toilets.Written 13 June 2023
- This is a most beautiful place to walk sometimes steep. if your lucky you also live in this areaas many people do.Written 17 March 2018
- Small car park opposite the track walks, get there early to park up. The walk we did was not easy in parts, a few hills and steps to climb but a breeze if you're young and fit. You need to do this walk at least once. Not far from Johnny Ripe Bakery, if you need a cuppa and a bite to eat after the walk.Written 25 August 2019
- Great trail that starts at the Frankston Waterfront and ends in Baxter. Connections to Mooroduc Quarry and Langwarrin Flora ReserveWritten 15 July 2018
- You can start at Caraar Creek Lane or Mills Beach and either way this approximately one Kilometer walk along the cliffs and below some very expensive housing provides great views of the bay and up and down the coastline. On a nice day you cannot beat this fairly rugged stretch of coastline.Written 27 August 2019
