Mornington Peninsula National Park
This park spans most of the Bass Strait ocean coastline between London Bridge at Portsea and West Head at Flinders. It covers a diverse coastal environment ranging from basalt cliffs, native bushland and roaring surf beaches, plus historic Cape Schanck and the inland forest of Greens Bush.
Housed in the National Trust classified Mechanics Institute which was built in 1876, it features exhibits including Aboriginal relics, authentic 19th century fashion items, memorabilia from early pioneering families and a maritime display. Surrounding the museum are the beautifully landscaped Pioneer Memorial Gardens which are home to Watts’ Cottage – a settler’s original home which was built in 1869.
