Just like a 'virtual tour guide' the Point Nepean audio tours are a must for any visit to Point Nepean National Park. It is a valuable insight into a place with so many stories to tell. If you do not have your own MP3 player, you may hire an iPod and headphones ($11.30) .
The history of Point Nepean spans back thousands of years to the Boonwurrung people. Since then the park has been used to quarantine people arriving in Victoria, defend the colony of Victoria and for military training of our army personnel.
Point Nepean has a diversity of places to see including the military forts and tunnels, the Quarantine Station and the memorial where Prime Minister Harold Holt disappeared. There are views of spectacular coastline, coastal tracks through moonah woodland to explore and native wildlife to discover.
