Township of Stony Point

This mangrove enveloped `outpost' is the end of the rail link from Melbourne and is the departure point for the French Island and Phillip Island Ferry Services.

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.
