Half Moon Bay (Victoria)
Half Moon Bay is a bay and neighbourhood on Port Phillip, south east of Melbourne. Located in the suburb of Black Rock, it is home to the Black Rock Yacht Club. This bay also gets a mention in the Cat Empire song, "The Wine Song". Half Moon Bay is also home to HMVS Cerberus, the last surviving monitor warship in the world, which acts as a breakwater. Half Moon Bay has a lifesaving club and a pier and has the Red Bluff Cliffs just along the beach. The cliffs were briefly featured in the movie "Mad Max'" as well as the 90's children's television series "Round The Twist". Half Moon Bay also has aquatic life which makes good snorkelling. It features many coastal processes.
The first Black Rock Post Office opened here on 23 April 1902, was renamed Half Moon Bay in 1922 and closed in 1968.
