Kelp forest

Plants, birds and animals occupy every niche around the dynamic Barwon Bluff, from high aloft the imposing limestone cliffs to the colour and diversity of the underwater habitats.

There is the tussocky glare of dunes and the dabbled haunts of Moonah woodland. The turbulent sweep of a Bass Strait beach, algae ringed rockpools, and the scrabble of basalt boulders.

There are the shifting sandflats of the Barwon estuary, cliff face crevices and outcrops, and subtidal ledges, gutters, overhangs and sweeping kelp forests.

All these wild places provide opportunities for plants and animals to forage, roost, grow, reproduce and thrive.

Discover the diversity of these remarkable habitats and the interactions of the flora and fauna that live there.
