Two Bays Walking Track (Mornington Peninsula National Park)

The Two Bays Trail meanders through Greens Bush within the Mornington Peninsula National Park. It is part of the 26km bush corridor from Dromana to Cape Schanck. The Two Bays Walking Trail is identified by a circular symbol displaying a Blue Wren, which is displayed on signage throughout the trail.

The vegetation and wildlife you will spot along the trail is outstanding, including spectacular strands of Grass Trees, with some reaching over 200 years of age, fern gullies, open grasslands, mobs of kangaroos and if you’re treading quietly you might see a little Bush Rat.

Snakes are also another creature that calls this area home, so please stay on the existing paths to avoid any unnecessary encounters.

Before you visit check the Fire Danger Rating and for days of Total Fire Ban at www.emergency.vic.gov.au, on the VicEmergency smartphone app or call the VicEmergency Hotline on 1800 226 226.

Coastal Pest Predator Control Program - Mornington Peninsula National Park

Between 31/10/22 - 05/03/23 Parks Victoria will be conducting a pest predator control program in coastal sections of Mornington Peninsula National Park. An objective of the program is to reduce fox numbers to relieve predation of native wildlife, particularly vulnerable and threatened species, such as the hooded plover and white-footed dunnart, in accordance with the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act (1988) and associated Action Statements.
 
The program will involve the use of para-aminopropiophenone (PAPP) and canid pest ejectors to bait foxes in strategic dune locations. The risk of PAPP to native fauna is very low. 
 
Dogs are prohibited from Mornington Peninsula National Park. If pets are suspected of having consumed a PAPP bait during the baiting period, a vet should be consulted immediately. An antidote to PAPP (methylene blue) is available and stocked by most vets on the Mornington Peninsula.
