Tucked away on Cape Schanck is Mornington Peninsula National Park. Often forgotten about as a feature of the Mornington Peninsula, it serves as home to a number of tourist attractions. Including the Cape itself where there are several lookouts providing spectacular vantage points to view Pulpit Rock and Devils Desk, both lava rock formations that have developed over millions of years.

Take a long walk down Bushrangers Bay Track. It leads from the eastern carpark and finishes at Bushrangers Bay. The return Walk taking about 2 hours.

There is an extension diverting from this track called the Two Bays Walking Track. This track runs 3km to Rosebud Flinders Road then onwards to Green Bush totalling 10km.

Near the main road entrance off Cape Schanck road is Fingal Picnic area where all facilities are provided. Electric BBQs, toilets, tables and a games area are all available for use.

Don't forget Cape Schanck Lighthouse, kiosk and boardwalk.
No dogs allowed.
