Black Rock

Home to HMVS Cerebus, Black Rock lies on the shoreline of Port Phillip Bay about 20km or so south-east of Melbourne's CBD.

Black Rock is part of the Bayside City, which stretches from Brighton in the north to Beaumaris in the south, and which embraces some of the most desirable, seaside residential suburbs in Melbourne.

Immediately to the east of this Black Rock is a 'parkland' of golf courses, including Royal Melbourne, as well as Victoria, Cheltenham and Sandringham.

There's swimming and boating, and some tasty bay fish to be landed at Black Rock, where hardly anyone ever has a bad day.

Keep travelling south to the lovely Mornington Peninsula. One of Melbourne"s most popular aquatic playgrounds, Brighton Beach, of course, is the focus of one of Victoria"s most recognisable promotional photographs - a shot which frames those famous, brightly painted bathing boxes against the Melbourne CBD across the inner reaches of Port Phillip Bay.

Kingston Heath Golf Club


Kingston Heath is one of the Golf Clubs of the world famous Melbourne Sandbelt and has hosted numerous national championships including nine Australian Opens, 2 Australian Masters and is the host of the 2016 World Cup of Golf.

The course is currently ranked number 18 in the world and number 11 outside of the United States and is regarded by many, including some of the world's best golfers, as one of Australia's finest golf courses.

Kingston Heath is one of the smallest courses of world renown. The difficulty of the course is centred around its bunkering, which is visually stunning. It is full of all the strategic interest golfers expect of a fine course.

A long course at over 6800 yards when it opened, it is now on the short side of what is regarded as 'championship' length but its genius is that it can still defend itself against the finest players. More importantly, it is a course to constantly stimulate and challenge those who play it with regularity.
