Bunurong National Park

Today we rode from Inverloch to Bunurong Marine National Park in Southern Gippsland.We have in the past explored some  panoramic Bass Strait coastal (here). Today we explored one of the State of Victoria's thirteen Marine National Parks the 'Bunurong Marine coastal Reserve & National Park'. Regular readers would be aware of my dislike of cycling on roads or preference of staying away from cars.But today's ride along the coastal tourists route  was one I've been looking forward to for some time.  We did it midweek and thankfully traffic was light. The bike path along the esplanade is great and the numerous carparks & places to pull over to check out the scenery made for a great ride.
Distance- 21.55 km 
Surface- Concrete Bike path & Bituman Road
Climbing - 82m
Time- 1hr 37:52

The Bunurong Marine National Park extends along approx 5 km of coastline on the Inverloch - Cape Paterson Rd, and extends offshore for approximately one kilometer. Thousands of dinosaur bones have been lifted from this area. The name "Bunurong" refers to the original Aboriginal occupants of the area.
