Brown Head Pinnacle is an awesome boat dive site about 100 metres off the tip of Brown Head on the eastern side of Wilsons Promontory. Brown Head lies in the Wilsons Promontory Marine Reserve facing north-east into Bass Strait, separating Larkin Cove from Bare Back Cove.

Diving at Brown Head Pinnacle

About 100 metres off the tip of Brown Head, there is a pinnacle of rock coming to within eight metres of the surface. The weed covered shallows peter out at 20 metres and change into a very spectacular deep sponge garden filled with colourful invertebrate life, patrolled by clouds of Butterfly Perch. The pinnacle starts to level off at 25 metres into a gently sloping boulder field covered in marine life.

This is the sort of dive you can do several times and never get tired of it.

Ideal Conditions: Brown Head Pinnacle is best dived with calm seas, no swell and no wind. Light offshore south-westerly winds may be acceptable. Avoid strong onshore westerly to easterly winds. All of the headlands in the are subject to currents, so best dived at slack water. See WillyWeather (Brown Head) as a guide for the tide times and the height of the tide.

Bass Strait Warning: Always keep an eye on sea conditions throughout any shore or boat dive in Bass Strait on Victoria's coastline. Please read the warnings on the web page diving-in-bass-strait before diving or snorkelling this site.

DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Should anyone decide to use these GPS marks to locate and dive on a site, they do so entirely at their own risk. Always verify against other sources.

The marks come from numerous sources including commercial operators, independent dive clubs, reference works, and active divers. Some are known to be accurate, while others may not be. Some GPS marks may even have come from maps using the AGD66 datum, and thus may need be converted to the WGS84 datum. To distinguish between the possible accuracy of the dive site marks, we've tried to give each mark a source of GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
