I headed south past the lighthouse along the path that meandered close to Port Phillip Bay. On this perfect autumn day, there were plenty of bikers and hikers taking advantage of the sunny conditions. Off shore, sail boats bobbed over the choppy sea while wavelets splashed against the rocks below.
Not far from the hill, was a Yalukit Willam clan midden. This was where Aborigines once lived, taking advantage of the coastal location to catch shell fish. According the Benbow, a Yalukit Willam clan elder, Port Phillip Bay had once been a large plain before the sea rose.
I climbed to the top of the hill once called Red Bluff with a view all the way to Melbourne city to the north and Elwood Beach to the south.
