VIC East - Corner Inlet Marine National Park

This 1,550 hectare park is located to the north and east of Wilsons Promontory National Park adjacent to the southern shores of Corner Inlet.

The Corner Inlet Marine National Park covers part of the existing Corner Inlet Marine and Coastal Park and contains mangroves, mudflats and widespread seagrass meadows, including the only extensive beds of Poisidonia seagrass in Victoria, the most faunally diverse habitat in Corner Inlet.

The Marine National Park samples a small part of this important sheltered inlet adjacent to the wilderness coast of Wilsons Promontory and is part of the Corner Inlet Ramsar site that protects the habitat for migratory wading birds.

Corner Inlet is the most easterly, and consequently the warmest, of Victoria's large bays. It boasts a complex network of mangroves, saltmarsh, mud banks, seagrass beds, rocky islands and deeper channels. Corner Inlet supports huge numbers of migratory water birds and healthy populations of seafloor animals and plants that are rare or absent elsewhere in Victoria.
