Point Cook Homestead built in 1857.The homestead was home to the Chirnside Family prior to construction of the Werribee Park Mansion.

Today the homestead is part of Point Cook Coastal Park with panoramic views over Port Phillip Bay.

The area was named after John M Cooke, mate of HMV Rattlesnake used to chart part of Port Phillip Bay in 1836. The e has been dropped from the place name by common usage. Between 1852 and 1920 the area was owned by the Chirnside brothers.

Victoria is Australia's second smallest State and covers only 3% of Australia's land area but has the second highest population of all States and Territories.

Victoria's mainland and islands have a total length of 2,512 kilometres coastline which is about 4.2% of Australia's 59,736 kilometres of coastline.

Australia is the driest inhabited continent and Victoria is no exception although the state capital Melbourne has the reputation to have 4 seasons in one day.

Victoria is located in the southeast of mainland Australia and includes the most southern point on mainland Australia at Wilsons Promontory National Park.
