Walkerville, Prom Country, Victoria, Australia

Walkerville

39 kms to south-west of Foster and situated on Waratah Bay, Walkerville is one of the oldest establishments in Victoria, and is reminiscent of a Cornish fishing village but was actually established as a port for the transport of lime.

The remains of the old lime kilns set in the cliffs can still be seen and are well worth the visit. In the early days workers at the lime kilns tried their luck panning for gold - a small amount was found in the area.

A relatively safe open sea port, the concrete boat ramp provides access to rich fishing grounds. Fishermen travel long distances to fish these waters.
Accommodation is available in the immediate area and you are only 20kms from Sandy Point which has a licensed supermarket.

The rocky outcrops and cliffs are ideal for walking and climbing. Walk between Walkerville North and Walkerville South along the cliffs and along the beach to the Cape Liptrap lighthouse which is 300feet above sea level with a self contained lighthouse. Noted for magnificent views over Bass Starit, the ruggedness of the coastline and its rock fishing. Make sure you seek the right advice before attempting any of the walks and if you are not an experienced rock fisherman be aware of the dangers of Bass Staight. This area was the scene of an horrific twin engine plane crash a few years ago.

Walkerville North has a camping area overlooking a sheltered beach.
