  • Awesome walks with terrific scenery. There is a shuttle bus for the long sections at a small cost. Interesting to see where Harrold Holt dissapear from. The fort has some awesome historic things about including the dissapearing guns. I understand that the fist allied shots in both world wars were fired from the cannons on the heads here.
  • An amazing piece of local history. Well preserved. There are speakers that explain points of interest to you and bring the fort to life.
  • 3KM walk from car park. Place is very scenic, there is another track which goes in the trees with distance over 5KM. Bus timings are from 10:00 to 3:00 PM. The ride ticket is 10 dollars.
  • Beautiful piece of Victorian history! Find a sunny day and enjoy the amazing walks in and around Fort Nepean!
  • Great scenery and a well set up museum, but be prepared for a long walk
