These photos were taken in January, 2016. The area was brilliant, we fell in love with it so quickly. I could easily spend a couple of days here camping and exploring it properly.
The above is a Chequerboard Snail – Cominella lineolata. I totally want a cookie for identifying that as I’m no good with snails. The rockpools here are completely different to Marengo.
Beautiful photographic opportunities await. The beach is somewhat sheltered yet also has different rock formations. It can be so easy to get distracted by the rocks that you don’t even notice the animals.
As you can see from the above photos, it is even more different under the water. We’re planning to return here to do some snorkling and check out the wildlife. I’m hoping to have an underwater camera by then.
Elephant snail and a chiton! I ended up emailing Melbourne Museum to get some chitons ID’ed, as there isn’t that much accessibly info online about them. Would love to spend a couple of visits properly comparing the rockpools.
This post is written 7 months after the fact because it was a bit of a whirlwhind visit. We came here after going to Cape Otway and we all were surprised. Everyone agreed that we wanted to return here, however we just haven’t had the chance.
I know I’ll be talking about here a lot in the future and hopefully do some hikes in the area. It’s my favourite part of the Great Ocean Road I’ve seen thus far.
