Holiday-making became popular in the late 19th Century. People would travel by paddlesteamer to Dromana pier.
The site known as Arthurs Seat, near Dromana, is the highest point on the Mornington Peninsula.
At 314 metres above sea level, the location is a natural vantage point to view the whole region. On a clear day, the You Yangs, the Melbourne skyline and the Dandenong Ranges can be seen, and across the Peninsula to Western Port. This vantage point has attracted visitors since before European settlement.
