The Pinnacles at Cape Woolamai
137km outside Melbourne lies a small island just outside Port Philip Bay called Philip Island. At its southernmost tip, facing the Tasman Sea is a point known to locals as Cape Woolamai. Located at the base of Cape Woolamai are The Pinnacles a stack of weatherbeaten worn rocks that stand up away from the cliff face, whlie being beaten by the waves from the Tasman Sea. The point is a good 5.6km from the parking spot across a sandy track that becomes a gravel path, and the conditions can go from the pleasantly warm to the bitterly cold, with the wind biting at your skin. The trail to the foot of the stacks is tricky but is well worn. The best times to visit are either at sunrise or sunset; I arrived at sunset. The spectacle is worth every moment.
