“The Rip”, also known as “The Heads”, is a dangerous stretch of water in Victoria, Australia, connecting Port Phillip and Bass Strait. It is the only entrance for shipping into Port Phillip and hence into Melbourne. Entering the heads of Port Phillip is a risky and dangerous procedure, with many sailors regarding it as one of the most dangerous shipping paths in the world.
Control of shipping movements through the heads is managed by the Point Lonsdale Signal Station. Large ships may only enter Port Phillip with a qualified pilot aboard to help them navigate through the heads, the little orange boat is the pilot boat. (Information from Wikipedia)
