Visitor Information

Walkerville


Walkerville is a place of history, walking possibilities and, of course, sand and water along Waratah Bay. There’s also plenty of flora and fauna to see.

Everyone will love exploring pools of water featuring sea life along the beach at Walkerville North. Rock formations are also worth seeing and are touted as among the most interesting in the whole of Victoria.

Fishing is another reason to visit WalkervilleAccording to Parks Victoria anglers seek Snapper, Sweep, Leather Jacket, Salmon, Yellow-tail Kingfish, Trumpeter and Parrot-fish from the beaches and rocks. Boats can be launched at Walkerville North.

Walkerville supplied lime to the Melbourne building industry in the late 1800s and early 1900s. You can still see relics of this early industry including kiln ruins at Walkerville South and tramway formations.

There are a number of walks in the vicinity of Walkerville. The limeburners walk is less than 1km long. It takes you past lime kiln ruins and provides access to the Walkerville cemetery. Another walk goes through coastal woodlands from the caravan park at Walkerville North to the Promontory Views housing estate. View Waratah Bay, with the ever present Wilsons Promontory in the background, from a side track along this walk. These extensive heathlands are home to the Southern Emu-wren, a diverse range of honeyeaters, Eastern Whipbird, Crimson Rosella and Pied Currawong according to Parks Victoria.

While you’re in the area be sure to visit the Cape Liptrap lighthouse that aims to improve coastal shipping safety. The current structure was built in the early 1950s.

Walkerville is about 200km from Melbourne along the Bass Highway.
