Eagle Rock, Warrnambool

Depth: 3 m (9.84 ft) to 20 m (66 ft)

Level: Open Water and beyond.

The Eagle Rock boat dive site is about 900 metres north-west of Thunder Point and east of Shelly Beach, offshore from the Warrnambool Golf Club on Victoria's Shipwreck Coast. It's a popular abalone and crayfish hunting site.

Diving at Eagle Rock, Warrnambool

Eagle Rock faces south-west into the Southern Ocean and has some of the most rugged terrain in the area. There is a long finger-like reef that extends about 30 metres out from the shore into the sea towards a solitary rock known as Eagle Rock.

There are crevasses carved 5 metres deep into the bottom with walls and caves cut into them. The area is rich in marine life due to the racing currents and rough seas providing plenty of food. The rocky bottom extends up to 2 kilometres out to sea gradually getting deeper.

Location: Warrnambool, Victoria 3280

Ideal Conditions: The Eagle Rock, Warrnambool dive site is prone to surge and swell. It's best dived in very good conditions with a low swell with light offshore northerly to easterly winds. See WillyWeather (Thunder Point) as a guide for the tide times and the height of the tide.

Boat Launching: Eagle Rock and the reefs in the area are best reached by boat from the Port Fairy, Griffiths Street Boat Ramp. While the Warrnambool (Lady Bay) boat ramp is closer, it's also more problematic.

Eastern Maar country
Eastern Maar country

Traditional Owners — This dive site is in the traditional Country of the Eastern Maar people of south-western Victoria between the Shaw and Eumerella Rivers and from Yambuk in the south to beyond Lake Linlithgow in the north. This truly ancient Country extends as far north as Ararat and encompasses the coastal townships of Port Fairy in the west, Warrnambool, Peterborough, Port Campbell, Apollo Bay, Lorne, and Airies Inlet in the east, including the Great Ocean Road area. It also stretches 100 metres out to sea from low tide and therefore includes the iconic Twelve Apostles. "Eastern Maar" is a name adopted by the people who identify as Maar, Eastern Gunditjmara, Tjap Wurrung, Peek Whurrong, Kirrae Whurrung, Kuurn Kopan Noot and/or Yarro waetch (Tooram Tribe) amongst others. We wish to acknowledge the Eastern Maar as Traditional Owners. We pay respect to their Ancestors and their Elders, past, present and emerging.

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.
