Five Mile Beach to Sealers Cove

Postby drpar2 » Thu 19 Mar, 2020 7:25 am

Hi all,

I am interested to hear if anyone has attempted to get from five mile beach to sealers cove (or vice versa) around the rocks of the cathedral at low tide?

I found this trip report, albiet a little out of date, from 1952 where it took them 2 nights to get over the cathedral, which given the bushfire of 2009 I imagine the scrub would be of similar height/density by now.

I found a trip report online years ago. Since then, every time I've stopped to enjoy view back to Sealers I've looked at the headland and contemplated tacking it. I don't think it's technically allowed these days as no off-track walking is permitted at the Prom. I can't find the page now (it might not exist anymore) but I did save it as a webarchive file! Unfortunately this forum won't let me upload a webarchive. If you feel like being more persistent than me with googling then try searcing for "Tour de Prom" by Travis Easton.

Or I could try emailing it to you if you like. Shoot me a PM.

I have done Sealers to Five Mile going above the rocks a few times. I had a quick look and found some photos from October 2005, not sure if they are the most recent. It's quite doable but slow. We went about 2 hours per km. Near Sealers we went along the top of the rocks but further along we went up into the scrub above the rocks. About 1 km south of Five Mile Beach is a creek that makes a nice campsite. Reasonably open and level. Of course off track walking is banned at the moment at Wilsons Prom.
