Starting from the southern jetty off Victoria Parade S, Coochiemudlo Island, this walk takes you on a coastal circuit around the island, exploring the beaches, bushland and wetland throughout. This heavenly piece of land features multiple scenic beaches for you to swim in, along with cafes and other attractions around the island. Expect to see interesting bird species in the mangroves. There are many informative signposts that tell you more about the local area and history. Speaking of, the island was first discovered by a british explorer named Matthew Flinders in 1799. Remember to wear a hat and put on sunscreen. Also, bring some insect repellent to protect yourself from the mosquitoes. The island is reachable by a ferry and car barge from Victoria Point. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
