In the 1860s and early 1870s, von Guérard painted a series of views on the Mornington Peninsula, south-west of Melbourne. In April 1863, he visited Cape Schanck, a dramatic outcrop of volcanic rock protruding into the Bass Strait. He made a series of sketches at that time which he later used to produce this work and also Castle Rock, Cape Schanck, both dated 1865; he had previously sketched there with his friend the Swiss artist Nicholas Chevalier in the late 1850s.This painting is justly renowned as one of von Guérard's best colonial landscapes. It is a fairly rare example of a coastal scene, and, rather than evoking the eerie sublimity of endless mountains in the still largely unexplored region of the Australian Alps or the volcanic curiosities of the Western District, it reverts to a picturesque formula that has more in common with his earlier Italian works of the 1830s and 1840s, representing Capri, or scenes of the peninsula from Sorrento to Amalfi.
