Quarantine Station Walk (Point Nepean National Park)

Walk Difficulty Discover the Point Nepean historical precinct which has almost 50 historical heritage listed buildings, and the oldest intact buildings erected from quarantine purposes in Australia. This is a great site to investigate with sprawling lawns, historic buildings, great views of the bay across to Queenscliff. The Quarantine Station was established in 1852 and is the second oldest permanent quarantine station (18522-1980). From 1952 the buildings also housed the Army Officer Cadet School. A self guided walk is available.

This area can be explored further by continuing on to Gunners Cottage (roughly 1.6km of easy walking) and Fort Nepean.
