  • Must be five stars!!! Great to spend a day in Fort Nepean. It shows lots of weapons which used in WORLD WAR TWO. There still have some unexploded booms under the land, the wind and sands are too strong for people to walk, but it provides shuttle bus service and remember the last service bus is 4pm, after that, you have to walk down to the car park by yourself.
  • This is an awesome place to visit with family.. a good hike walking or cycling.. kids will love it. Visit it when weather is good .. also there is bus facility that takes us to the point and you can enjoy the views ...
