Portsea Back Beach Wall is just outside Port Phillip Heads on the Point Nepean side. The wall runs East to West offshore from the Porstsea Back Beache in Bass Strait, Victoria. It lies an area of scattered reef with depths ranging from 12 to 30 metres.

The sea life in this is area is prolific with Blue Devils, Weedy Seadragons, Seals, Abalone and much more. Crayfish abound under ledges and often they are found in the open, walking around unafraid. Schools of Snapper, Kingfish and Barracouta have been sighted here.

There are so many reefs covering a huge area along the coast here that it's hard to describe the many different sites in this area. Subject to swells and a slight current, it's very weather dependant.

The Soft calcium that comprises most of the terrain in this area has eroded into lots of little swim throughs valleys and overhangs all topped off with a light scattering of kelp. This is a fantastic dive site for an avid fish photographer.
