Leaving Blanket Bay

Leaving Blanket Bay on day three, the track follows the coastline pretty closely until it gets close to the Cape Otway lighthouse. The country is not as damp as that on day two, and the vegetation is dominated by these smaller eucalypts and coastal heath.

The designated campsite for this leg of the walk is a few hundred metres past the lighthouse, but my plan was to stay at Bimbi Park, a nearby caravan park. Before leaving home, I posted food for the remainder of the walk to Bimbi Park, which allowed me to have an extra day at Cape Otway and meant that I never had to carry more than five days worth of food.
