Phillip Island Nature Park
Cape Woolamai circuit sits atop an energising granite cape, overlooking the famously-ferocious Bass Strait. Hiking along the beach, through sand dunes home to threatened migratory shore birds, we will visit The Pinnacles, pass lookouts and the highest point of the island, before winding through banksia forests and Cleeland Bight. From September until April one million migratory Short-tailed shearwaters arrive on the island from the Aleutian Island near Alaska!... so our March retreat is the perfect time to see this threatened species, and their new born chicks, in residence!
For those in the Wild Tribe who ventured with us here in 2017, we'll be taking a slightly different route and experience the Cape in its full post-summer magic!.. including the Short-tailed shearwater migration who were landing in Alaska last time we visited!

* Easy hiking grade: General level walking on well-made trails. Uneven surfaces may be present (rocks, tree roots, etc). Rolling hills, some with decent incline.
Note: This is not a "walk in the park" :) As with all hikes in wilderness 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).
*slight increase in 2018 investment is due to increased fees + permits.
