PORT PHILLIP BAY

Port Phillip (also commonly referred to as Port Phillip Bay or [locally] just The Bay), is a large bay in southern Victoria, Australia; it is the location of Melbourne. Geographically, the bay covers 1,930 square kilometres and the shore stretches roughly 264 km. Although it is extremely shallow for its size, most of the bay is navigable. The deepest portion is only 24 metres, and half the region is shallower than 8 m. The volume of the water in the bay is around 25 cubic kilometres.

There is considerable sea traffic on the bay with commercial vessels, navy vessels and cruise ships, but also all manner of pleasure craft. We are experiencing some beautiful sunny, warm and fair Autumn days at the moment, perfect for sea sports. These photos were taken from Southbank and look towards the Southwest.
