Point Cook lends its name to the original homestead built in 1849. It is adjacent to the RAAF base, and to the new Coastal Park. The point is named after John Cook, who was the mate on the HMS Rattlesnake, which chartered Port Phillip in 1836. Today the original homestead and its buildings are part of the Coastal Park and are open to the public.Point Cook Homestead Beach lies between the actual Point Cook, a low basalt promontory, and a protrusion 700 m to the south-west. It is a narrow, 10 m wide beach fronted by sand and basalt rock flats up to 200 m wide. The old Homestead Jetty crosses the beach, but is now in ruins.The beach and adjacent tidal flats are part of the Point Cook Marine Reserve. Line fishing is permitted, but collecting of marine organisms is prohibited.
Only possible at high tide on the shallow sand flats. Watch out for the numerous rocks.
Better at high tide when the sand flats are covered.
The Park and Homestead are well worth a visit and have extensive shady park and picnic facilities.Read less
