Life under the sea

Life under the sea at Solitary Islands Marine Park is unique.

  • The East Australian Current from the north meets cooler currents from the south, allowing both tropical and temperate species to thrive.
  • The park features a diverse range of habitats, including estuaries, sandy beaches, intertidal rocky shores, sub-tidal reefs and open oceans.
  • It also contains the important Solitary Islands, from which the park takes its name.
