Teachers and students are reminded that activities involving the collection or removal of any material, including animals, plants, shells, rocks, sand or seaweed, are not permitted within the Bunurong Marine National Park.
Activities along the coast, including the Dinosaur Discovery and Rockpool Rambles, must take place at low tide. Tide times are charted here for Inverloch or can be downloaded from Marine Science Australia. (The times for Point Lonsdale are close enough to Inverloch tide times.)
The beaches of the Bunurong Coast near Inverloch are ideal for school groups as they are sheltered, easily accessible from parking areas and have picnic and toilet facilities close by. Along with the rock platforms, the beaches here offer many opportunities to explore this coastal area, study a variety of ecosystems and gain an insight into what lives in the ocean beyond the low tide areas.
The beach is also an ideal area to pursue disciplined-based learning such as science, SOSE, art and mathematics together with physical, personal and social learning through team work and games.
