This is a favourite walk for many of our Walk for Western Port-ers! Warringine Park has many indigenous species, including 110 birds, 23 mammals, 13 reptiles and 12 fish. The boardwalk was rebuilt in 2015 after nearly all of it was destroyed by fire. The regeneration of the vegetation is amazing and the rangers believe the fire will maintain the biodiversity values of the park. The boardwalk passes through mangroves, coastal wetlands riparian vegetation and woodlands. Warringine Park has the southern-most mangroves in the world, with plenty of bird-life and good views to French Island. There are several interpretative signs along the boardwalk, describing various features of the wetlands and their inhabitants.
Meet at the car park at Jacks Beach, Wooleys Rd, Crib Point at 9:30 am, Sunday October 22. From here, rangers from the Park will accompany the Warringine Walkers to Hastings, where we’ll meet up with the other Walkers and enjoy the fun and food at the Foreshore Reserve. (Remember, no dogs allowed in Warringine).
Transport can be arranged back to Jacks Beach if necessary.
