Point Nepean will be home to a marine research and education centre under a joint arrangement with Monash University and the University of Melbourne. The National Centre for Coasts, Environment and Climate will be built on the site of the former quarantine station and will provide interdisciplinary research on marine and coastal ecosystems, climate science and environmental management.

The universities are developing a business case and proposal in partnership with Parks Victoria and all levels of government that aligns with the State Government’s masterplan for the quarantine station precinct. The Federal Government will contribute $25 million for the centre’s construction.

“This project brings a long-term, sustainable environmental use to the buildings, two higher education institutions to the Mornington Peninsula and a world-class marine and coastal research facility to Victoria and Australia,” said Flinders federal Liberal MP Greg Hunt. “I have fought passionately over many years and alongside many members of the local community to  revitalise the old quarantine buildings in Point Nepean National Park for a marine research centre, and I am delighted that this long-held vision is now a step closer. It is my deeply held belief that in decades to come the National Centre for Coasts, Environment and Climate will become one of the world’s great marine and oceanographic research centres.”

Federal Environment Minister Sussan Ley said the universities would focus on environmental and cultural sensitivities of the Point Nepean precinct and would work closely with the community as the project developed. “The potential of the facility to contribute to greater public understanding of the ecological and cultural treasures of Point Nepean is also something the universities will be exploring,” Ms Ley said.
