When gold was found in Victoria, Melbourne suddenly became part of a growing Victorian metropolis. From an obscure pastoral settlement, the gold rush of the early 1850s made the center of Victoria not only one of the most populated cities, but also a centre of most attractions. If free-settlers were the first to discover Melbourne around the Yarra River in 1835, now, all types of people flock this part of the Australian territory only to find the best of what they call the "Australian Dream".

Even if Melbourne is said to host four seasons in a day, its volatile weather conditions do not stand as hindrances, thus they still permit excursionists to sail the Port Phillip Bay or even engage in other famous water adventures on the crystal clear beaches of Melbourne.


Diving in Melbourne

Just 25 kilometres away from the bustling city, a sandy beach at Mordialloc also provides a good venue for fishing on the Port Phillip bay shores, while in the south-eastern part of Melbourne, another secluded beach at Beaumaris is known to be a great spot for snorkeling and diving activities.


With wrecks, kelp forests, and reefs, the temperate Australian waters only make excursionists enjoy great diving activities. Melbourne also caters to any particular interest, with its amazing marine parks, where everyone may enjoy the spectacular sights of the flora and fauna, and a peek on the different schools of fish along with other exotic species.


With over 50 wrecks in the Port Phillip Heads area, you really are spoilt for choice. The Eliza Ramsden always proves popular with fish and divers alike. It can be difficult to get onto the site due to shipping channels and tidal currents. Be persistent and patient as this is one dive not to be missed. The Coogee and the Hurricane are also enjoyable dives with Gorgonian Corals and many small schools of fish in attendance. Be sure to discuss your itinerary for wreck diving with a reputable local source. Much can depend on local knowledge of tides, weather, shipping times and visibility.

Divers may as well be found exploring the HMVS Cerberus wreck, which is also a popular summer hot spot for tourists and locals alike.


As part of a dive or snorkeling you can experience swimming with dolphins. Though dolphins are wild animals, you will be amazed by their intelligence and friendliness, and willingness to interact with humans. Do not attempt to touch or grab the animals – remember they are not house-trained animals!
