About Reef Cam

Located at Popes Eye, within Port Phillip Heads Marine National Park, Victoria, the webcams give the world the chance to see some of the life teeming in the bay. With the underwater camera, we see a rich submarine habitat, home to fish, seals and even dolphins. Above the water, we have a great view of the birds that roost or nest in the area – such as Australasian Gannets and Black-faced Cormorants.
