We invite you to take a look at the treasure trove in and around the bays
Port Phillip Bay and Western Port are home to a wildly diverse, colourful and fascinating marine wonderland. In this section, we've picked some of our favourite stories which we've discovered on our journey to understanding the bays.
From a creepy crawly army of crustaceans, to male baby bumps and sex-changing fish, our bays really are a treasure trove. But you mustn’t miss the collection of photos that capture gently swaying seaweed, nursing a multitude of fish and hedged by corals, hydroids and ascidians.
Above the water there’s a rich natural heritage of migratory birds, and those that stay closer to home all year around. The birds and their habitat are so special, that the area is recognised internationally under the Ramsar Convention.
