Mornington Peninsula - Dive Notes

Mornington Peninsula is the southeastern "barrier" separating Port Phillip Bay, Victoria, from the open sea (Bass Strait). I am putting Jane Breidahl's dive notes here, and will link her "finds" to species pages as I prepare them. Her mention of "pier dives" refers to the long ferry wharfs or jetties that are found along the shores of Port Phillip Bay. They are supported by a framework of wooden piles which are an excellent place for encrusting organisms to settle so providing home and food for many invertebrates, including nudibranchs.
