Photographer's Note

Point Napean was a defence installation, including gun batteries which fired the first allied shots in both WW1 and WWII, protecting the entrance to Port Philip Bay. It was converted to a National Park in 1988. At one stage it was also a quarantine facility. Observation point is the remains of a jetty built in 1879 and used for cattle being quarantined to disembark.
