Rockpooling at Point Leo Veach - Westenport Bay
Point Leo is a small coastal village on Westernport Bay, about 80 km south of Melbourne. It is popular with surfers, swimmers, beachwalkers, beachcombers, campers and rockpoolers.
I visited Pt Leo on Thursday aftrernoon October 29, 2009, an unusually hot day (29 degrees), exploring the reefs and beach on a 3 km (return) coastal hike towards the community of Merricks!
The tide was well out, exposing the spectacular reefs and rock pools.
A large group of students were on the beach, as part of a Surf School, learning to surf and being instructed in the skills of lifesaving.
