Depth: 1 metre (3.3 feet) to 4 metres (13 feet)

Level: Open Water and beyond.

The Pipelines at Indented Head on the Bellarine Peninsula are the water intake for the Great Southern Water onshore abalone farm. They run out about 500 metres towards Governor Reef. The end of the pipelines is marked with a yellow buoy.

Nice sponge growth under the pipelines, and many rays also hang out underneath. The tops of the pipelines are dominated by kelp and home to lots of filter feeding ascidians.

Be careful of boats in this area and take a dive flag buoy.

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.
