Point Lonsdale.

Point Lonsdale was first discovered by European explorers in 1802. It is named after Captain William Lonsdale, the first Police Magistrate of Port Phillip .

In April 1803 three convicts escaped from the newly-formed British settlement at Point King. The convicts made their way around to the Bellarine Peninsula but starvation loomed and two of the men vanished while attempting to return.
