“Point Nepean National Park’s rich Indigenous and European heritage, plus its wonderful views of Port Phillip Bay and the ocean, make this a very special part of Victoria. Most of the area was out of bounds to the public for more than 100 years, creating a place with a strong mystique and highly significant natural and cultural values. Explore the quarantine station and read about its history, dont forget to pack a picnic lunch”

“Rising above the Mornington Peninsula, Arthurs Seat is the most familiar of all Port Phillip Bay landscape features. Its 314-metre summit, reached by road or on foot, gives spectacular views of the bay and Port Phillip Heads. On a clear day the view extends as far as the city skyline, the You Yangs and Mount Macedon. Take the pleasant one hour circuit walk to Kings Falls or visit the delightful Seawinds Garden featuring indigenous and exotic formal gardens, along with sculptures by William Ricketts. There is 24 hour access to the park. How to get there: Arthurs Seat State Park is located 60km south of Melbourne on the Mornington Peninsula (Melway 159 D12). Access to the park from Melbou”

“Situated between Arthurs Seat and Cape Schanck, Greens Bush is the largest remnant of bushland on the Mornington Peninsula. The area contains a variety of vegetation communities and is a wildlife haven, making it an excellent place for nature walking. Peaceful surroundings and the natural beauty of the bush make the area excellent for walking, picnicking and observing nature. Explore the walking tracks that weave through Greens Bush and discover the many different vegetation communities in the park - from eucalypt forests to fern gullies, heathlands and grasslands. There is lots of birdlife in Greens Bush. Look for wrens, honeyeaters, parrots and birds of prey such as the Black-shouldered Kite and Wedge-tailed Eagle. In the early morning or at dusk, you can often see kangaroos feeding in the open grasslands. Black Wallabies prefer the forest and are well camouflaged in the shadows with their darker coat. However, most of the mammals in the park are nocturnal. As the light fades, listen for the soft twittering of Ringtail Possums or Sugar Gliders. The Little Forest Eptesicus Bat makes a higher-pitched call as it searches for insects, usually eaten on the wing. Native wildlife is abundant in this area and is particularly visible early in the day and at dusk. This walk can be done in either direction or as part of the longer 26km Two Bays Trail. Start/Finish: Undulating bush track. Start Location: 210 Baldrys Road Main Ridge Victoria 3928 End Location: Boneo Road Cape Schanck Victoria 3939 Distance: 10 KMS Time to Complete:3.5 HRS Facilities: Carpark, One way, Walk, Walks Difficulty: Grade 2/5”
