The Millionaire’s Walk, Portsea
Trek Through Australia’s Richest Postcode
Ever wondered what it would be like to win lotto? Not saved up enough to buy that mansion? Well you can have a taste of that lifestyle on the Millionaire’s Walk. This cliff-top path provides stunning views of the Bay as it winds its way through the backyards of some of Australia’s richest homes.
The Millionaire’s Walk makes up part of the Sorrento Portsea Artists Trail. You’ll see dazzling wrens, beautiful topiary and wild plants – the landscape, flora and fauna are simply stunning, not to mention the architecture of the mansions! Private jetties & sea baths are scattered throughout the coastline on the walk.
With an average house price of $2.8 million this is Australia’s richest postcode! The path is also of great historical significance as it bears the patch of land where the Union Jack was first raised to claim land in Australia. The path stretches from Point King Rd in Portsea to Lentell Ave and is 1.5km long. There are several gates along the path which make it feel like you are walking through the front yards of mansions but it is all part of the trail – please stick to the path though.
