The Location

Protected from the pounding surf of Bass Strait by it’s barrier islands, the quiet waters of Nooramunga Marine and Coastal Park create an intricate network of waterways throughout a complex of over 40 sand islands. Framed by the peaks of Wilsons Promontory, the park consists an immense range of marine plants and invertebrates, which provide food for the thousands of migratory wading birds that arrive each year from their northern hemisphere breeding grounds.
