The peninsula’s tip is marked by the stunning Point Nepean National Park, originally a quarantine station and army base. A large section of the park is a former range area and still out of bounds due to unexploded ordnance, but there’s plenty to see here and long stretches of traffic-free road that make for excellent cycling. There are also plenty of walking trails throughout the park and at the tip is Fort Nepean, which was important in Australian defence from the 1880s to 1945.
