Depth: 17 metres (56 feet) to 40 metres (131 feet)

Located just North of the Lonsdale wall system, The Steps has some fantastic terrain. Starting in 17 metres, it steps down and along with huge overhangs and gullies and the area is also littered with caves. Swimming south will take you to the deeper water with the best parts of the dive between 20 and 30 metres.

Each step is full of marine life sheltering in little nooks and overhangs and there are Crayfish in the area.

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.
