Living on the Edge
Welcome to the new website of the Friends of the Bluff and the Barwon Bluff Marine Sanctuary. This is a work in progress so if you find any omissions or errors please let us know. If you are a regular user of the old website and would like a working copy of this version contact us for a CD version. We will gradually transfer and update content but it will take time!
The Barwon Heads Bluff and surrounds is a special place. It is a place where the Barwon River enters the cool waters of Bass Strait and the Southern Ocean. It is a place where tides and waves have shaped the rocks over time and created a wide diversity of places for animals and plants to live.
To find an Elephant Snail hidden beneath a rock, to watch the kelp sway back and forth with the waves, or to explore the magic gardens in the rockpools is to glimpse the beauty, complexity and uniqueness of the Barwon Bluff Marine Sanctuary.
