Port Phillip Bay opens into the open seas
via a shallow and narrow opening between
Point Lonsdale from Point Nepean
Point Nepean from Point Lonsdale.
Just behind the trees on the left is where
the Moyne River converges with the sea.
The mouth of the Hopkins River at Warrnambool.
The commonality each of these
…is that all three empty in Bass Strait.
Port Phillip Bay on the right, Warrnambool’s
Hopkins River (second from let) and
Port Fairy’s Moyne River is the extreme left point
Hopkins Falls, on the Hopkins River…
…is a few kilometres out of Warrnambool
in Victoria’s SouthWest.
At only 12 metres high it is not a high falls however,
it is 90 metres wide which compensates it lack in height.
This is an August (winter) photo.
During summer months while there is
still water flowing it is nothing like this.
