National & state parks

Step into the magical realms of Mornington Peninsula's national parks and alternate between great heights and underwater environments, from tranquil bushland to wild ocean beaches.

A park teeming with life
Encounter the bandicoots, wallabies and parrots that inhabit Mornington Peninsula National Park. The coastal cliffs, scrubby dunes and beaches, banksia woodlands, and wetlands dominate the landscape from Sorrento to Portsea, Flinders and Cape Schanck.

Prime locations and fascinating history
Seek the views atop Arthurs Seat and spot koalas on French Island, or teeter along Cape Schanck's cliffs as you overlook some of Australia's most treacherous coastline.

Walk to the tip of the narrow headland in Point Nepean National Park and explore the military installations and tunnels at the fort, an important defence post from the 1880s to World War II. Walk or cycle past outstanding coastal scenery and panoramic views of Bass Strait, the Rip and Port Phillip Bay.

Undersea communities
Float, dive, snorkel or swim (but don't fish) in Port Phillip Bay marine parks containing important fish breeding and nursery areas, established to safeguard valuable marine habitats and species.

For further information contact Parks Victoria on (in Australia only) 131 963.
