One of the great viewing points in Melbourne. Easy to reach and free parking. It would be difficult to capture in one shot the magnificent view from this point as there is a vista over most of Port Philip Bay. Don't miss.

If you are in the area or driving through make sure you give yourself ten minutes to pull over at the top of Oliver’s Hill to take in the breathtaking views across the bay. When the sun is setting the colours across the sky can...More

Best view around the bay from Mornington to Melbourne city. Parking at the top available or if you prefer a steepish walk, park at the bottom near the boat ramp. Starting at the base of the hill you can see the architecture of the "Roundhouse"...More

Heading North on Nepean Hwy towards the city of Melbourne you pass leafy Mt Eliza before the run down Oliver's Hill into Frankston. Just as you begin the steep, winding strictly enforced 60km/hr run there is an exit to your left that allows you to...More

This is a great lookout with views over Port Phillip Bay, Melbourne cityscape and the Dandenong Valley. You can get great photos of dawn and sunset. There is a coin operated telescope there. I drive down there nearly every day and think myself lucky.

One of the world's best natural views; and like two dead birds stuck to a windowsill, you can see the huge brutalist 1970s buildings, front and centre by Frankston beach. Wake up, Frankston council! Also, unprepossessing and dangerous, empty car park pull over area. Shame.
