GoodLife: Peninsula Style, Issue 42, Page 055 (transcription)

Point Nepean National Park is one of Victoria s most beautiful natural landscapes.
Its rich history has played an important role in shaping the early settlement, quarantine and defence of Victoria.
Visitors to the park can explore the military forts and tunnels, see the Historic Quarantine Station or view the memorial where Prime Minister Harold Holt disappeared.
There is now a bike riding tour which begins at the Quarantine Station at Pt Nepean and continues along the coastal bike riding tracks with spectacular views and native wildlife to discover.
Stops are taken along the way to learn about the unique attributes and history of the park by our experienced local guides.
Surrounding Point Nepean is Port Phillip Heads Marine National Park.
The diversity and abundance of marine flora and fauna in these waters is greater than many comparable habitats elsewhere in the world.
All tours have a marine educational component, offering visitors an understanding of the environment they are visiting and how to preserve it.
