New trail for Yallock-Bulluk Marine and Coastal Park
Tuesday 7 December, 2021
A stunning 32-kilometre coastal walk is the centrepiece of plans for the future of the new Yallock-Bulluk Marine and Coastal Park.
The park’s newly released Access and Infrastructure Plan will increase opportunities for people to enjoy the spectacular area through improved access, upgrades, new facilities and better links between coastal towns.

The trail between San Remo and Cape Paterson will extend and incorporate existing tracks, clearings and trails, including the George Bass Coastal Walk.
Along with other walking and cycling trails and new facilities, this long-distance walk will increase visitation to the area and encourage people to stay longer and explore further, boosting tourism and supporting the regional economy.
Combining existing parks and reserves along a 40-kilometre stretch of coastline between San Remo and Inverloch, Yallock-Bulluk Marine and Coastal Park was established this year as part of the Victorian Government’s $105.6 million Victoria’s Great Outdoors investment.

The park honours the Yallock-Bulluk Clan of the Bunurong People, whose Country stretches from Tooradin in the west to the Tarwin River in the east.
The Access and Infrastructure Plan for the park was developed in partnership with the Bunurong Land Council Aboriginal Corporation and in consultation with key stakeholders and the community.
It provides for walks of different lengths and difficulties through the varied and beautiful terrain of Bunurong Country. The plan also details supporting trail and park infrastructure such as rest stops, lookouts, and car park upgrades.
Work is scheduled to begin on priority sections of the trail and other facilities in 2022.
