Lilli Pilli Beach




















Another beach bordered by tall spotted gums. The surprise at Lilli Pilli is the extensive rock platform to the south. We walked all the way around to Mosquito Bay, where we had coffee and a cake at By The Beach cafe, then walked back along George Bass Drive to Lilli Pilli.

The main features of this bay are the boat ramp, and a rathr good cafe. It's a great reward if you walk around the extensive rock platform from Lilli Pilli beach, the next beach north.

Also known as Blacks Beach

We've been visiting Tranquil Bay since we first came to Rosedale, usually on the way to walking to Guerilla Bay. You cross two headlands.

In her book Poppy, Drusilla Modjeska wrote of a walk from Guerilla Bay:

" This morning we went for a long walk, over headlands, round rocky promontories and along beaches. We swam in still water at the curved end of the beach while surf crashed at the other. There was nothing but old-fashioned wooden boat sheds."

A walk in the opposite direction to that which we have often done.
