Level: Open Water and beyond.

Along the Port Phillip side of Williamstown the shoreline is a continuous series of rock ledges and outcrops. The Point Gellibrand Rockpools, Battery Road, Williamstown, are initially shallow and rocky underfoot, but the bottom slowly deepens out into a broad area of reef. There is a good quantity of fish life out here including some very big colourful nudibranchs. It can be a very rewarding area for macro photography very close to the city of Melbourne.

Free parking at either end of Battery Road. The car park at the playground is closest for accessing the rock pools. This site is also known as Bunbury Rockpools.

DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Should anyone decide to use these GPS marks to locate and dive on a site, they do so entirely at their own risk. Always verify against other sources.

The marks come from numerous sources including commercial operators, independent dive clubs, reference works, and active divers. Some are known to be accurate, while others may not be. Some GPS marks may even have come from maps using the AGD66 datum, and thus may need be converted to the WGS84 datum. To distinguish between the possible accuracy of the dive site marks, we've tried to give each mark a source of GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
