Police Point has a many layered history, it was once part of Point Nepean Quarantine Station, the oldest quarantine station in Australia. It is a culturally significant site for the Bunurong People who know it as Monmar, named for the beautiful white trunks of the Moonah trees common to this area.
The Park provides a refuge for the Long-nosed bandicoots amongst other rare fauna. Moonah woodland and grassy calcareous swales make it the ideal habitat for these small marsupials.
Police Point was home to the police who staffed the entrance to Point Nepean Quarantine Station. Of the original buildings, only the wells and tank foundations survive and the original police barracks room which is now incorporated into the Superintendents Cottage.
