This app presents images and information on over 300 species of marine and coastal animals and plants that can commonly be seen in the park and nearby waters. It also includes park information and activities that may interest visitors. Maps and a gallery of the location, marine life and habitats are provided.

The state of Victoria in southern Australia is home to a rich diversity of marine habitats and a dazzling array of marine life, many species of which occur in no other region of the world. Since 2002, a system of Marine National Parks and Sanctuaries across the state protect these marine creatures and their habitats.

A jewel amongst these parks is Bunurong Marine National Park, a park of more than 2,000 hectares extending along six kilometres of coastline. This park includes wide intertidal rock platforms (popular for rock pooling) and extensive underwater rocky reefs, seaweed beds and seagrass meadows (excellent for diving and snorkeling).

Parks Victoria is responsible for the day-to-day management of these areas and has developed this app in collaboration with Museum Victoria to connect people and communities to the diverse wildlife and activities on offer in Bunurong Marine National Park.
