Yaringa Marine National Park


Located between the mainland and Quail Island Nature Conservation Reserve in Western Port, this park is part of the Western Port RAMSAR wetlands and is an area of international significance due to its importance for wader birds. The area encompasses a variety of ecologically important habitats including saltmarsh, mangroves, sheltered intertidal mudflats, subtidal soft sediments and tidal channels.

Many of the variety of habitats present in Yaringa are essential for the survival of a huge range of species.

The mudflats are an important feeding ground for many wader and other water birds. Some of these birds, such as the Red-necked Stint, breed in the Northern Hemisphere and migrate to Yaringa Marine National Park in the warmer months. Over 295 bird species have been spotted in Western Port with 32 of these species known to be migratory birds.

French Island Marine National Park


Located 10 kilometres south of Tooradin, French Island Marine National Park is adjacent to the northern shoreline of French Island National Park in Western Port. Extending 15 kilometres along the shoreline, the park encompasses approximately 2800ha. It includes one of Victoria's most extensive areas of saltmarsh and mangrove communities and also includes mudflats of state geomorphological significance.

The tidal channel system of varying depths, profiles and orientations, contributes to the high diversity of habitats, including many seagrass beds in the surrounding waters. These seagrass beds are particularly important as they have largely disappeared in other areas of the bay since the 1950s.

In addition to the bird life, there is a rich diversity of marine life. The seagrass beds support many commercially viable species such as King George Whiting, Black Bream and Yellow-eyed Mullet.
