North Wall Corner is is an amazing dive, situated at the Northern end of the Lonsdale Wall in Port Phillip. Lonsdale Wall runs South to North, and at this point it turns and runs West to East. Here in the corner the current has scoured quite a deep area. The walls tower vertically here with amazing splits and overhangs sheltering an amazing variety of soft coral and sponges.

Generally this dive is done on Slack Water at the end of the Flood so that it's at its clearest. In this dive it is best to swim along the East West wall first and then return onto the North South wall before the current picks up.

Divers have the opportunity to catch crayfish (Southern Rock Lobster) at this dive site. Remember your catch bag, current Victorian Recreational Fishing Licence, rock lobster measure, and cray tags. Please abide by all current fishing regulations if you intend to catch crays. See How To Catch Crayfish for practical cray hunting advice from The Scuba Doctor.

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.
