Point Nepean National Park, Portsea

#1 of 10 in Nature in Mornington Peninsula
Situated on the tip of the Mornington Peninsula, Point Nepean National Park offers some of the best of scenery on the Australian coast. The park isn't just a nature reserve; it also touts some of the most significant historical monuments in the region, such as an abandoned Quarantine Station and a handful of military forts. Tunnels connect these forts via a complex underground system of footpaths, so be sure to include an underground tour along with your above-ground exploring.
