The Cape Schanck Lighthouse at Mornington Peninsula has been sitting at the top of the cliff top overlooking the Bass Strait since 1859. This working lighthouse keeps the shipping lanes safe for boats of all types as they pass Mornington Peninsula to and from Melbourne.

Today, Cape Schanck Lightstation is a part of Parks Victoria and provides visitors with a maritime museum, daily guided tours of the working lighthouse, and spectacular coastal bush walks.
