Cape Liptrap Coastal Park
Photographs And Information about Cape Liptrap Coastal Park
The Cape Liptrap Coastal Park is found on a narrow peninsula at the south-eastern-most tip of Australia and covers over 4000 hectares. It was declared a National park in 1997. I have heard that it is prone to high winds and strong rains and saw evidence of the erosion from a recent storm.
How To Get To Cape Liptrap Coastal Park – This National Park is approximately 160 kilometers south-east Melbourne and can be accessed from either the Bass Highway at Inverloch or the South Gippsland Highway at Leongatha or Foster. It is also close to Waratah Bay, Walkerville and Fish Creek.
Real Estate, Land And Coastal Properties – There are a number of properties surrounding the Cape Liptrap Coastal Park. The area is mainly used for grazing, with the odd self contained cottage, Bed & Breakfast or Luxury Retreat style accommodation, but real estate here doesn’t become available for sale very often.
If you do find something you can expect it to be quite windy and stormy at times with magnificent coastal views (some of the best in all of coastal Victoria), and probably quite secluded. But it won’t be cheap! Check with the estate agents at Venus Bay, Inverloch, Leongatha and Foster for details of what is available, or use our convenient sitemap.
The Cape Liptrap Lighthouse – According to Parks Victoria, the original lighthouse was established at Cape Liptrap in 1913 to improve the safety of coastal shipping. In 1951 the steel tower was dismantled and replaced with what we see today.
The lighthouse is only a short walk from the carpark and is a great place to take a camera or binoculars. You’ll find a picnic bench, low native shrubs and heaths, steep cliffs and incredible rock formations. Several information boards describe the characteristics of this special area.
