Point Gellibrand Coastal Heritage Park is a new regional park that has been created to protect the cultural heritage values and coastal character of the area, whilst providing a range of visitor facilities and passive open space opportunities.

Take a walk along the foreshore and enjoy the view of Port Phillip Bay and the city of Melbourne. Have a picnic down by the water and enjoy the sea breeze or a barbecue at Quarry Picnic Area. Discover the history of the area, including Point Gellibrand's most significant landmark, the Timeball Tower.

Cycling along the Bay Trail that takes you around Port Phillip Bay is a popular activity. Try fishing or take your dog for a walk. Explore the rocks at Shelly Beach.
