Point Nepean marks the southern point of The Rip (the entrance to Port Phillip) and the most westerly point of the Mornington Peninsula, in Victoria, Australia. It is the last land that you see on the left (port) side of a boat when leaving Port Phillip Bay to enter Bass Straight. It was named in 1802 after the British politician and colonial administrator Sir Evan Nepean by John Murray in the historic exploration vessel HMS Lady Nelson.

Its coast and adjacent waters are included in the Port Phillip Heads Marine National Park, while its land area is part of the Point Nepean National Park.
