This area is of high landscape significance and is characterised by West Head at Flinders and the Nobbies/Seal Rocks of Phillip Island framing Western Port's main gateway.
In contrast to Port Phillip Heads, this area is a more subdued stretch of water with Mornington Peninsula lining one side and the spectacular landforms of the Nobbies and Phillip Island on the other.
Major view points are from Mornington Peninsula and Phillip Island and from extensive boating activity between. The Heads viewshed includes the Main Ridge (Mornington Peninsula), Western Port lowlands and the western edge of Phillip Island.
- This area is of outstanding scenic quality and requires appropriate planning controls to protect this sensitive landscape.
