Stony Point

This mangrove enveloped ‘outpost’ is the end of the rail link from Melbourne and is the departure point for the French Island ferry service.

Fishing activity, commercial shipping and the bustle of a maritime depot add to the interest of the tiny community which began in the 1860s to provide the most convenient mainland port link to Philip Island. It also served for a time as a port for transporting South Gippsland coal by rail to Melbourne. Although once a well known cray fishing port, today’s fishing is mostly recreational.
