Melbourne's very own dolphin

Burrunan Dolphin

If you've been out on Port Phillip Bay and seen a grey dolphin, you might have seen Melbourne's own unique species of dolphin - the Burrunan Dolphin! Only recognised in 2011, Burrunan Dolphins live in Port Phillip Bay, the Gippsland Lakes and waters around Tasmania.

To learn more about this wonderful creature, and the efforts to protect them, we speak to Dr Kate Robb from the Marine Mammal Foundation, and Grace Day, a PhD candidate at Deakin University.

If you enjoy this show, please consider making a donation to Out Of The Blue and 3CR Community Radio. Head to We appreciate every cent we receive.


Sunday 11:30am to 12:00pm
Information about marine and coastal environments. News and interviews with marine scientists, campaigners and conservation workers. Presented by volunteer broadcasters who are passionate about marine environments, both local and across the world.
