Level: Open Water and beyond.

Steels Rocks is located about one kilometre east of Portarlington Pier on the Bellarine Peninsula. There's a small car park and boat ramp, so you can usually park very close to the water. About 50 metres (164 feet) offshore there are rocks sticking out of the water which are surrounded by drop offs and boulders.

Protected from south 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.
