Underground at Point Nepean

Point Nepean is located at the entrance to Port Phillip Bay and contains old military fortifications dating back to the 1880s.
Amongst the many features at Point Nepean are the old gun emplacements which are serviced by a series of interesting tunnels and purpose built rooms buried into the hill.
The underground atmosphere is enhanced by audio loops continuously playing the eerie sounds of a military yesteryear.

Life during wartime.

A trip to Point Nepean provided some interesting photo opportunities.    It’s home to Fort Nepean, an abandoned military site overlooking the entrance to Port Phillip Bay.    There is an atmosphere of cold and concrete wherever you go within the underground maze of tunnels, rooms and gun emplacements.

When you wander around outside there are polite signs warning of unexploded munitions encouraging you to stay on the defined pathways.
