Point Nepean

Fort Nepean
Signs warned of unexploded bombs as wintrmute and I walked around Point Nepean. I trembled slightly. For over 100 years, the park was closed to the public and used by the military.

The first shots in both World War I and World War II were fired from Fort Nepean, and there are remains of gun emplacements, crumbling concrete and rusting metal structures. It felt more like a bunker than a fort, with dark underground tunnels and eerie whistling piped through them.

Cheviot beach is also located at Point Nepean and is where Prime Minister Harold Holt disappeared in 1967. The scenery at Point Nepean is beautiful, with cliffs, beaches, and many trees, and the history is fascinating, but it also feels a bit creepy.

A snake slithered across the path in front of us, reminding us that unexploded bombs are not the only threat to our lives.

Have you been learning how to tell dangerous snakes from non-dangerous ones? Or do they just tell people to keep out of the snakes way and never mind if it's dangerous ?

I have indeed been learning about snakes! I looked up what kind of snake it could have been and narrowed it down to two different types, both of which are venomous and could kill you.
