I am always looking for new things to experience with our family. There is so much out there and it would be great to share some of our weekend adventures.

Ricketts Point is a rare gem that is found in the Melbourne's south east suburb of Beaumaris. It is a well known marine sanctuary where you, family and friends can visit any time of the year and experience unique underwater wildlife.
A marine sanctuary is a protected water environment. It is protected to ensure that sea creatures such as fish, crabs, snails and algae can grow, live, eat and look after their own families in a safe place.
The water is quite shallow and gives kids the opportunity to explore the underwater sea creatures and appreciate all the different types of sealife and seagrass habitats.
Our kids were mesmerised by the vast array of sea life and enjoyed exploring the natural habitats of the creatures found in the waters. We were all amazed at how clear and untainted the waters were. We saw different types of shells, algae, sea worms and sea snails. As the area is protected, it is important to remind children not to pick up any shells or damage any plants.
