Stam­ford Hill Loop Hike

About the Walking Trail

Extend the Stamford Hill Hike (an out-and-back 2.3 km / 45 min return) on this full loop, up over the Stamford Hill and returning along the coast on a section of the Inves­ti­ga­tor Trail.

Excel­lent views, tran­quil sur­rounds and inter­est­ing his­to­ry are fea­tures of this hike. Take in the mag­nif­i­cent panora­ma of Lin­coln Nation­al Park, Boston Bay and off­shore island from the his­toric Flinders Mon­u­ment at the top of Stam­ford Hill. Dis­cov­er his­toric ruins left by the wood­cut­ters (near check­point 6).

At way up to the summit of Stamford Hill there are interpretive signs about the challenges Matthew Flinders encountered in finding water, and signs about the area’s natural history.

Begin the hike from the car park, picnic area and beach at the base of Stamford Hill.
