Information

Point Lonsdale is the western headland of The Rip, the entrance to Poet Phillip Bay, when entering or leaving Bass Strait. It is to the right hand (Starboard) side of a vessel leaving Port Phillip Bay for Bass Straight. A prominent lighthouse dominates the headland. The town, named for a police officer William Lonsdale, was the birthplace of former Victorian Premier Thomas Hollway.

The area is now closely settled but in early years was associated with escaped convict William Buckley. A signal station was built there in 1854 and settlement came to the area in the remaining half of the Nineteenth Century.
