Depth: 4 metres (13 feet) to 10 metres (33 feet)

A lovely shallow dive on a very pretty reef situated about a kilometre offshore from Rosebud in Port Phillip, Victoria. The shallow reef runs North West for about 250 metres (820 feet) and rises two or three metres from the seabed in an otherwise sandy oasis.

Lots of small life, urchins etc. and an abundance of fish life. Masses of fish all congregate here to feed. This in turn attracts some lovely harmless sharks predominantly the Wobbie Gongs and the Seven Gills.

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.
