Great Otway National Park: Moonlight Head Circuit: a walk on the wild side 10.6.13
How abouts I swell the ranks of the Otway Ranges Walking Track Association this Sunday on a walk of the Moonlight Head-Wreck Beach circuit?
Occasionally the group mixes it up and breaks away from the well-trod Trans-Otway Waterfall Walk (I will be leading a walk on this in the next 3 weeks) and goes coastal, in this case, SW from Lavers Hill to Moonlight Head. Visit The Gables, Moonlight Head, Devil's Kitchen campsite (part of Great Ocean Walk) and the anchors of 'Marie Gabrielle', which lost its cargo of rum and whisky here in 1869, bringing no end of joy to the colonial yokels perched on the cliff-tops above waiting until darkness fell...
You will need to be prepared for inclement weather, especially along the wild, unblemished Wreck Beach. Post-walk, din-dins at Lavers Hill Tavern. There is a caravan park next door (I am staying in a cabin) or continue home.
Notate here or PM me so I have an idea of who's coming. Final details put in place around Friday afternoon.
