Depth: 24 metres (79 feet)

Chimney Rock, off Barwon Heads, is a swiss cheese reef with lots of life. It's a weird rock full of holes with a sort of chimney hole in the top and an old cray pot under it. It is part of a reef full of similar Swiss cheese rocks.

AB's GPS mark is -38 18.089 144 30.198, but it marks the reef, not the chimney in particular. Best try not to shot on the reef as there is a good chance the shot will go down into the Swiss cheese and get stuck. And half the fun is finding the chimney!

Black Rock Underwater Diving Group (BRUDG) have the GPS mark for this site as -38 18.079, 144 30.184.

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.
