Sunday, January 6th is the day! Due to the incredible response to the “Peninsula’s Biggest Paddle Out” this Sunday, please note that car parking will be limited around Pines Beach at Shoreham where the event will be taking place.
With hundreds of people confirming their attendance on Sunday and a wedding at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Byrnes Road, Shoreham, the need for participants to car pool or organise a drop-off (and pickup later) is essential!
Please refer to the car parking map below and plan your journey to Shoreham before leaving home. Once the car park at the beach is full, car parking will be along Byrnes Road and Cliff Road with a short walk down to the beach. Look for anybody who may be dropping people off at the beach and find out if you can grab a lift.
Some people are also planning on parking at Point Leo and walking or paddling around. Be considerate of residents, and find a place that works for you.
Note: No car parking is permitted on Frankston-Flinders Road or on private property.
You can read our original announcement about the event for schedule information and other useful links.
Volunteers will be in attendance to assist in managing traffic and giving lifts—please be patient and arrive early before the “Paddle Out” begins.
To participate, you’ll need to sign a waiver when you sign-in on the day. Here is a copy for you to read in advance so you can save time:
Save Westernport is pleased to assist the community by using its media avenues to get information to the public.
Then you can just…
Stay safe and enjoy this epic Paddle Out. We might even beat the world record (it’s only 511 paddlers!)
