Australian Fur Seal

Port Phillip Bay is home to a healthy colony of male Australian Fur Seals.¬†These male seals are the poor souls¬†who were not able to establish themselves in the breading colonies in other parts of the Victorian coast. They now occupy Chinamans Hat. A man made structure in the middle of the bay specifically built for the colony of bachelors. It’s a great place to go for a snorkel with these playful marine mammals.
