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 sandstone rock platforms of the Bunurong Coast contain the highest diversity of intertidal and sub-tidal invertebrate species along the Victorian coastline. These include brittle stars, sea stars, sea cucumbers, barnacles, sea anemones, chitons, gastropods and bivalves. There is also an abundance of seaweeds and sea grasses.
The rock platform at Inverloch on Anderson's Inlet is ideal for visiting school groups as the area is sheltered from the open ocean, easily accessible from parking areas and close to toilet facilities.
