Cape Schanck Lighthouse was the second coastal lighthouse build in Victoria in 1859. It is situated on the southern most tip of the Mornington Peninsula and sits 80 metres above the ocean on the cliff top overlooking the Bass Strait. It's tower was built from limestone and it stands just 21 metres high.
Cape Schanck Lightstation is now part of Parks Victoria and gives visitors the opportunity visit a maritime museum, join a guided tour of the working lighthouse, it boasts spectacular coastal bush walks with stunning ocean views and 4 self contained cottages that are available for overnight accommodation. We enjoyed our time at the cape and would recommend the walk along the coast.
