Situated on the Mornington Peninsula, the township of Cape Schanck boasts stunning coastline and natural scenery set on the southernmost tip of the peninsula itself. Settled around the time the Cape Schanck Lighthouse was built in 1859, the area was named after Captain John Schanck, the man who had invented the raised keel of sailing vessels. Choosing Mornington Peninsula accommodation, like Cape Schanck holiday rentals allows holidaymakers to enjoy the best of Victoria's pristine coastline, at an easy distance from Melbourne.

Why Cape Schanck?

Cape Schanck is an excellent place to relax and indulge in the best things in life. Enjoy swimming, paddleboarding, kayaking, canoeing and snorkelling along this strip of ocean during summer and in winter make the most of the stunning, stormy scenery and rug up with a good book and hearty meal over looking the waves. Watching the sunset from Cape Schanck's iconic lighthouse is a memorable pursuit, rich in history as the lighthouse was only the second one built in Victoria and has since welcomed tens of thousands of vessels into Port Phillip Bay.

Great Things to See and Do

The local peninsula offers beach goers easy access to the nearby Flinders Ocean Beach for those looking to catch a wave or enjoy a spot of surf fishing. For those who are looking for a more laid-back setting, the beaches on the bay are considerably more subtle and calm. Once you're well sunned, take the time to enjoy some of the 100 kilometre boardwalk that weaves through the Mornington Peninsula Park. Although the Two Bays Walking Track and Coastal Walk are both shorter, they are still great places for ship spotting and a nice day out. Many of the walking trails feature bushland, fern gullies and lush woodlands as well as plenty of great ocean views.

Take a stroll down the main street to browse through the numerous antique and craft shops along the preserved streetscape and enjoy chatting with the friendly locals over a warm cup of coffee.

The Best Local Attractions

Many travellers recommend a visit to the local lighthouse museum and the lighthouse itself, where you can experience and explore this fully operational lighthouse. For golfing enthusiasts, Cape Schanck is a name synonymous with a pristine green and stunning fairway views. Whether you tee off at the championship Cape Schanck golf course, or the nearby Flinders Golf Club, it'll certainly be a game to remember.
