Point Nepean National Park Projects
Point Nepean National Park is one of Victoria’s most important natural, cultural, and historical places, and a popular destination for hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.
It is a significant place for Traditional Owners, the Bunurong people, whose history on these lands span back thousands of years. It is an important sanctuary for the protection of a range of native plants and animals, such as the White-footed Dunnart, the Burrunan dolphin and the Coastal Moonah woodland plant community. It has also played an important role in shaping early European settlement and the defence of Australia, being used to quarantine people arriving in Victoria, defending the colony and state, and for military training.
A number of projects are currently underway at Point Nepean, to protect the site’s values and enhance the ways that people can connect to this beautiful national park. Find out more about these below.
