Cape Schanck is located at the southern tip of the Mornington Peninsula, fronting the waters of Bass Strait, and provides visitors with an insight into the area’s maritime history, beautiful rocky coastal features, unspoilt beaches, scenic walking tracks and easy access to surrounding golf courses. The Cape Schanck lighthouse was built in 1859 out of local limestone and features a rare spiral staircase made from stone. Tours of the lighthouse are conducted daily and offer spectacular views from the circular viewing platform near the top. The lighthouse is surrounded by a reserve which includes a museum, former keeper’s quarters and associated buildings.
