With Naturewise Conservation Holidays you will visit Point Nepean, an area rich in history and beautiful natural landscapes. It has played an important role in shaping the early settlement, quarantine and defence of Victoria.

The Point Nepean National Park is located at the very tip of the Mornington Peninsula, and features outstanding coastal scenery and panoramic views of Bass Strait, the Rip and Port Phillip Bay. The park is of high significance as it is home to a number of native species, including the Echidnas, Black Wallabies, Long-nosed Bandicoots, White-footed Dunnart and more.

Join Conservation Volunteers and Parks Victoria in important research, and help preserve the natural assets of Point Nepean through remote camera monitoring work. You will make a direct contribution to critical environmental science and park management, learn about the native species and the monitoring program, and experience the beautiful landscape of Point Nepean.
