  • Screw Creek Estuary/Townsend Bluff walk

    Screw Creek, Victoria, Australia .

    This is a lovely walk from Eugenie's, and if you set a good pace takes just over an hour return. Take the path opposite us and head east, through the Foreshore Camping Reserve, meander through a banksia forest to the edge of Screw Creek, where wading birds hunt along the sand flats and small birds fly about the mangroves catching insects. The sandy track gives way to a boardwalk over the coastal grasses, then a bridge over the creek to a brief loop walk through the whispering she-oak forest up to Townsend Bluff. The views over Anderson Inlet can be breathtaking, particularly on sunny days when the sand glows gold. With the rapidly changing vegetation and a chance to see the phalanxes of crabs marching along the flats at low tide, this is an excellent way to start the day. Keep an eye out for a favourite with the locals, the "faraway" tree.
