YouTube – Barwon Bluff Marine Sanctuary

The Barwon Bluff Marine Sanctuary is one of 11 Marine Sanctuaries and 13 Marine National Parks across Victoria that form a system of highly protected areas of the sea. These reserves complement our National Park system on land and provide protection for Victoria’s rich marine and coastal diversity of habitats and species.

Barwon Bluff Marine Sanctuary covers 17 hectares and is located at the mouth of the Barwon River in Barwon Heads, about 20 km to the west of the entrance to Port Phillip. Watch the below YouTube videos to find out more!
