George Bass Coastal Trail
A most picturesque eight-kilometre undulating track along a cliff-top foreshore, with one beach descent where for close to half a kilometre you squelch in soft sand underfoot. It is not a circuit, which meant that we settled on a sixteen-kilometre trek. The track was quite level at the start, at least where we started, and finished, at the Kilcunda end. But once the hills began, they never ended. I was acutely aware that every descent would be a climb on the way back. Thankfully the weather was cool. The strong sea breeze in our faces on the first leg pushed us back a little bit but also kept the flies at bay. The absence of that breeze on the way back brought out the flies in swarms that bothered us continually. I was whacked at the end.
