Food & Water Stories

Reef Cam

From the bottom of the sea direct to your screen.

Reef Cam is Australia’s first ever rocky-reef, live-feed, combined under and above water webcams. Check out our own reality show below, staring some of Port Phillip Bay’s coolest residents – the local flora and fauna – including those from deep under the sea!

The webcams only operate during local daylight hours and when the sun is out as we use solar to power the web cams.

Reef Cam highlights And a great video compiling the very best moments captured by our webcams

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.

Thanks to support from the John T Reid Charitable Trusts, Reef Cam is now an important element of TNC’s Great Southern Seascapes Program.

All installation works were carried out in line with Parks Victoria’s issued Scientific and Works Permits, with every care taken to respect the natural values of this unique location.
