Stunning views over Western Port to Phillip Island can be seen along the way as well as pretty rural views. This walk has a distinct local feel and you can often see horses along the track. After our walk its time to sample some of the regional wines this area is famous for. We head to charming Stonier Winery, home to some of Australia’s finest cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines to enjoy wine tasting.
