Lovely place with great views of the rip. We were lucky enough to see the Spirit of Tasmania passing through on the way out of the bay. Plenty of car parks & great walks. Worth a look

Lovely place to wander and enjoy the view. Has a fairly easy walking track down to the jetty and easy to use stairs from the jetty up to light house.

The best view to watch the strong powerful rip! A must stop to see the entrance to port Phillip heads, especially if you can time seeing a ship come through
