Coastal Trails & Lookouts

Princetown Boardwalk

The Princetown Boardwalk restores a historic link from the township to the recreation reserve and river mouth. It also connects the town to a lovely picnic area and fishing platform near a bridge over the Gellibrand River.

Princetown’s new viewing platform provides a great perch to view birdlife and kangaroos on the estuarine river flats below the township.

– Length: 600m including connective trail
– Time: 25 minutes
– Where: Commence from viewing platform on Post Office Road Princetown, 18km east of Port Campbell

Access Information

Boardwalk is partially accessible for prams and wheelchairs from the car park on Old Coach Road West (near the Gellibrand River Bridge.) Watch the uneven connection from the roadside verge to the boardwalk.
