12 min walk Birdrock Beach is a secluded sandy bay below steep cliffs. It’s named after a flat-topped sandstone reef a short distance offshore which is a haven for seabirds. The reef is historically significant for giving protection from north westerly winds to Matthew Flinders and his crew when he surveyed Port Phillip Bay in 1802. Main access to the beach is down steep stairs from the The Esplanade. This staircase is one of the most attractive on the Port Phillip Bay coast. A tunnel through rich vegetation opens out to lovely views of the bay framed by native trees as you make your way down the cliff. Although there are reefs off the beach there is plenty of sandy space for swimming

A homestead and wildlife sanctuary on the Mornington Peninsula steeped in local history, flora and fauna. The Briars homestead was completed in 1851 and occupied by Alexander Balcombe. After failing to find his fortune at the goldfields Balcombe farmed the land and tended 40 hectares of vineyards – experimenting unsuccessfully in wine production. Balcombe was born on the island of St Helena and when Napoleon was exiled there, his father had business dealings with the former emperor. Continuing that Napoleonic association, Balcombe’s granddaughter Dame Mabel Brookes established a collection of Napoleon related memorabilia which is displayed in the homestead. Entry to the park is free.

Cape Schanck offers stunning landscapes; the mystery of dramatic volcanic features, unspoilt and wild beaches and scenic walking tracks with spectacular ocean views. It is also a site of rich European history with its heritage listed lighthouse precinct. Follow the walking track from the carpark towards the Cape. This short circuit walk takes visitors to the start of the wooden staircase and boardwalk which descends to the beach and rock platform. Several lookouts have spectacular views over the geological formations called Pulpit Rock and the Devils Desk which were created over millions of years. Please take care on the rock platform as large un-expected waves may wash across the rocks.
