Banksia Point is an interesting diving and snorkelling site at Ricketts Point, Beaumaris facing south-west into Port Phillip. It's part of Ricketts Point Marine Sanctuary, a 115-hectare area located at Black Rock and Beaumaris, in north-eastern Port Phillip. Banksia Point is rarely dived or snorkelled, but can be very pleasant on a calm day.
Banksia Point is a great site for beginner snorkellers and night dive enthusiasts. It's so close to the city, thus very convenient for those living in Melbourne. Great for getting back in the water, a night dive after work, or just an excuse to get wet!
Most of the suggested path is close in with water depth up to around 2 metres. While the dive is shallow and close to shore, there is plenty of interesting marine life to keep you engaged.
