The view at the top of Schnapper point is breathtaking on a clear day. To the north Melbourne's high rises are visible and Mt Macedon can be seen. To the west it's possible to see the three peaks of the You Yangs and also the Bellerine Peninsula. At the top of Schnappers point lookout you will notice in the picture it overlooks the Mornington pier, Mornington Yacht club, The Rocks restaurant and Schnapper kiosk/cafe.
Fishermen fill the Mornington pier trying to catch snapper. If you prefer to be out on the bay fishing, charter boats operate daily from the pier Bay Fish N Trips and Relax, Go Fishing are two popular charter companies.
However if you are like me and prefer fresh seafood without having to catch it yourself, mussels are available at certain times of the year straight from the boat. Kayak, boat and pedal boat hire are also available.
This playground is always popular as it's situated at the end of Main St. During the week you will see many mums having their personal training session, whilst the children are supervised on the playground. Wednesdays sees many more children in the park as it's market day.
Many tourists and day trippers fill the park on the weekends which adds greatly to the atmosphere.
BBQ's are dotted throughout the park as well as water fountains. There is a toilet block and plenty of shade, including a very large Moreton Bay fig tree.
Car parking is easy with many spaces and is free.
Being across the road from the shops, you won't have to go far for a great coffee.
