Point Nepean has a beautiful national park that lies at the end of Mornington Peninsula and is home to some exquisite scenery. The park is quite large, thus you have the option whether to walk or cycle through it.
It costs $27.70 for bike hire, which is actually not bad compared to say the guided cycling tours they have along Mornington Peninsula. Another advantage, is you can go at your own pace. It becomes a bit difficult towards the end as it gets uphill, but you can always jump off and walk if it is too difficult (as it was for the very unfit me).
Despite the extremely windy Victorian coast and the slightly gloomy weather, the park's ocean views and flora was stunning. We couldn't help stopping here and there to admire the views and take photos.
Even better, everything was so peaceful, hardly a sound except for the breeze and crash of waves. It's a great opportunity to go for a ride away from suburban traffic and to reward yourself with magnificent views.
I don't feel like enough people know about this tranquil spot, content with the beaches in the Mornington area to explore further. But trust me, if you get the chance, take a visit and go for a hike or ride, admire the landscapes and take a day to rest your mind.
