Township of Point Leo

Backed by dunes of white sand, a large camping area and a fair sprinkling of modish holiday homes, Point Leo’s beaches provide both a relatively safe environment for surfers and more energetic swimmers, as well as for younger family enjoyment.

Peak period visitation attracts a small entry fee to the reserve. Although the history of the settlement dates to the 1930 and 40s, it was the interest in surfing following the 1956 Olympics that began its real growth; first as a remote and primitive location for early Malibu boardriders, then blossoming during the 1960s and 70s as Melbourne’s closest surfing location.
