Cape Schanck + Bushrangers Bay

Mornington Peninsula National Park

Are you ready to reawaken?

Boasting some of the wildest and most spectacular coastlines, our early spring journey through Boon Wurrung/Bunurong country will guide us along the dramatic clifftops between the quiet solitude of Fingal Beach and the fiercely breathtaking Cape Schanck. Traversing panoramic views of Bass Strait, and greeted by spring wildflowers, we'll journey within magical coastal bushland and forgotten crystal beaches. We'll rediscover threatened shorebird habitat, the magic of tidal renewal, and perhaps even marvel at humpback and southern right whales on their annual migration to warmer birthing waters. Together we will welcome spring awakening, and emerge invigorated and reconnected. (Sneak peek the trail here ).

Our day retreats draw on yoga, meditation, mindful hiking, nature interpretation and ecology, seasonal bushfood and re-wilding practices, Join us, and rediscover yourself in the wild.

For more information see our scholarships page.

* Easy hiking grade: General level walking on well-made trails. Uneven surfaces are present (rocks, tree roots, leaf litter etc). Some hills with decent incline and large steps. Slippery surfaces and boardwalk at times, particularly after rain. Some beach walking and exposure to cliff edges (Sneak peek the trail here).

Note: This is not a "walk in the park" :) As with all hikes in wild areas, the walking trails will of course be unpaved. As such, all hikes (including those categoried as 'easy') will have plentiful uneven ground, rough, slippery and undulating surfaces. This is the wild after all! If you have any concerns about the trail, or any injuries or illnesses which you'd like to discuss, please feel free to contact us (there is also a place to provide this info during online registration).

With wholehearted gratitude for country, spirit, and its people, throughout the lands on which we live, teach, and practice, we respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Owners, their cultures, knowledge, and their continuing care for their country. We pay respect to their Elders past, present, and future. Sovereignty was never ceded.
