Arthur’s Seat gives dramatic views over the whole of Port Phillip bay and down the Peninsula to Point Nepean. Its 300m summit has a steep but wonderful climb on a well formed trail.

Green’s bush is the heart of the Mornington National Park and offer wonderful remote walking through Eucalypt and grass tree forests, withy many resident wildlife and bird species.

The walk to Cape Schanck lighthouse past the secluded Bushrangers bay is a highlight of the Track. At the lighthouse you can walk down the clifftops on a boardwalk that give dramatic views along the coast and of the lighthouse itself.

The long back beaches which stretch from Cape Schanck to Portsea give wonderful Ocean views and artfully eroded sandstone cliffs. They are famous for their rugged surf and beachside communities.

Sorrento is a stylish resort town dating back to the 1800’s that offers a great base for walkers with its many shops and cafes.

Point Nepean National Park  is an amazing formation, a thin wedge of the Mornington Peninsula that just out between Port Philllp Bay and Bass strait.  It was once housed an army base and Quarantine station and there are many historical buildings to explore.

Portsea is a wealthy seaside village that is famous for its “Millionaire’s walk” past the clifftop Mansions of the area.

Dromana is a seaside town that is the starting point for the Mornington Peninsula walk and has many cafes and a pier.
