Looking west from Point Nepean to Point Lonsdale Lighthouse.
During my school days, I am sure we were told that
the entrance to Port Phillip Bay, known as The Rip,
was only 6 fathoms (36 feet) deep.
Point Nepean from Point Lonsdale Lighthouse.
Google states that Port Phillip Bay’s deepest portion
is only 24 metres (79 ft) and that half of
the bay is shallower than 8 m (26 ft).
