Point Nepean Ocean Beaches

Point Nepean Ocean Beaches - Point Nepean

The beaches along the Bass Strait coast of the Point Nepean National Park are spectacular, dangerous and closed to the public.  Swimming, fishing and surfing off the beach are not allowed.

Cheviot Beach is named after the SS Cheviot which was wrecked nearby in 1887.   Thirty five peolpe lost their lives.   It is also known for the disappearance of Prime Minister Harold Holt in 1967 while swimming at the beach.  With continuous rocks and reefs off the beaches and strong rips this is an extremely dangerous beach.

Pearce Hill and Nepean Hill beaches have large waves breaking on the outer reefs and are equally as dangerous as Cheviot Beach.

Spectacular views of these three wild beaches can be seen from the walking tracks within the park.
