  • If you want t burn some calories and want to visit a historic place, you have reached the right place. We went with small kids. From car park to fort nepean, it's 2.8 KM one way . There is bus service...  more »
  • Great day wandering around the Port Neppean area, shuttle bus is well worth the $10 we paid per person. Great little exhibits with voice clips as you walk through different areas around the fort  more »
  • We went with young kids ,they loved the views and walking around, exploring. The toilets at the fort were disgusting, other than that a lovely day out.  more »

  • An amazing site to walk. Ride or take by bus for a small charge. Well worth a visit. If your fairly fit you can walk or ride on bike the whole area as it is a large area to cover. But there is a bus which takes u aĺl the way to the end. Great place to visit if you like old buildings. Bit of history and a good walk
  • Great place for an adventure and walk. Incredible views of south pacific ocean and Port Phillip Bay. Bus is $10 return, bikes allowed. No food, Don't go during a windy day. Historical landmarks, engineering plant room, bunkers, tunnels etc.. Allow 4hrs very easily.
  • Great views and interesting exhibits. There are shuttle bus services from the car park but close early (last one is about 4pm) but didn’t regret walking. Remember wind breakers or jumpers as the winds can get quite strong
  • Great way to spend a day. So much to see, its about 7km. Well looked after. Cheap shuttle bus available. We rode our push bikes.
  • Interesting site with great views, plenty of history and abundance of information on the fort and the different structures in the complex. Good walk in wonderful views is already a good enough reason to come, but this suite has more to offer with informative plaques, audio visual exhibits, restoration and original artefacts. A worthy destination for a family visit or simply on your own. There's also a shuttle bus operating at certain hours during the day, but the walk is highly recommended. The beaches around are magnificent, but going in is not allowed. If you're in the area and like nature walks, check out Cape Schank as well ;)
