Level: Open Water and beyond.

In the central harbour area of Geelong there is the historic Cunningham Pier. It features mostly introduced marine pests and stinking anerobic mud. The depth under the pier is 3 metres, dropping down to dredged 10 metres on each side. The pylons have silt covered sponges, ascidians and sea cucumbers struggling to survive against the Northern Pacific stars and sabellid fanworms.

Nearby are the remains of Steampacket Wharf, the remains of Yarra Pier, and the wreck of the sailing clipper ship Lightning.

Protected from southerly and westerly winds. See WillyWeather as a guide for the tide times and the height of the tide.

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.
