This paper continues previous ecological studies (Dakin, Bennett, and Pope 1948) of the intertidal zone of south-eastern Australia.

The environmental factors and the zonation of the animals and plants on the exposed rocky coasts of Victoria are described.

As a result of this survey a rearrangement of the biogeographical provinces of the Australian littoral is made, and a new Cool-temperate fauna and flora are recognized on the coast of Victoria.
