Shire Hall Beach (Mornington)




A coastal area with a choice of three beaches (Shire Hall Beach, Scout Beach and Mothers Beach) in one with a foreshore reserve and picnic facilities.

There is a continuous, 600 m long beach that begins as Mothers Beach in the western protected corner, then changes to Scout Beach in the centre and ends in the east as Shire Hall Beach.

Swimming - Shire Hall Beach is the least safe of the three beaches. Water depth varies over the bars and troughs at Shire Hall, and care should be taken if children are using the beach.

The beach has a General Beach Hazard Rating of 3/10 (Least hazardous)

Review:


This beach is the most easterly of the three beaches which form a long 600m beach together. There is a carpark opposite #799 Esplanade. There is an old toilet beside the car park and a South East Water building which has been decorated by some lovely murals (artist is Tony Sowersby Mural Group). There are also a few picnic tables set back from the beach.

The beach has a rocky bluff, storm water drain point which discharges into the bay and a collection of beach huts. The beach line is also a bit rocky. The best advice is to head further west to Scout Beach or Mothers Beach where the beach is more clear of rocks and wider.

As the beach connects to Scout Beach to the west, the cliff juts out towards the beach and has a rock wall at the bottom. Stone steps lead to views above the beach. At the top of the cliff there is a shelter with seats, unshaded seats with views along the beach, water tap and BBQ.
