Point Nepean National Park
Point Nepean National Park is a place of captivating heritage and stunning landscapes. To celebrate this, the People and Parks Foundation and Parks Victoria are working together to deliver a range of programs benefitting the community in the areas of wellbeing, education, environment and conservation, arts, health, research and science.
Our programs and activities create meaningful ways for people to make a connection with the park while educating and inspiring communities to protect this special place for the future.
The opportunities for involvement at Point Nepean are diverse; from partnerships in program delivery and volunteering, through to making donations and grant giving.
Point Nepean National Park is rich in history. Our most recent project at Point Nepean involved collecting and making accessible much of this history. Point Nepean Quarantine Station's story can now be shared with visitors and the wider community for years to come. The historical records are now directly accessible to all, and help us learn more about our history through presenting these stories in interactive media.
With funding from the Public Record Office Victoria this project digitally captured the significant records held by Parks Victoria and the Nepean Historical Society, making these available via the internet.
There are fascinating records covering registers of passengers, handbooks, letters, telegrams, journals, maps, plans, newspaper clippings, books and archival images. Working with Public Records of Victoria, Nepean Historical Society and Friends of Nepean Quarantine Station volunteers, we are proud to support this important work, further expanding the collections that help to communicate the indigenous, military and modern day history of the park.
