Montforts Beach, Blairgowrie
Updated: Jan 27, 2020
Montforts Beach lies in the Mornington Peninsula National Park, at Blairgowrie. It is backed by 10 to 20 m high calcarenite bluffs, capped by sand dunes, with some of the dunes reaching down to the beach. The beach is narrow and only active at high tide, being fronted by over 100 m of rocks and reef flats that dominate the surf zone. Waves average 1.5 m on the reefs, but are lower at the beaches. Montforts has some sheltered tidal pools at low tide, which offer the most suitable spot for bathing. Beware it is a very rocky surf zone.
