Depth: 10 metres (33 feet) to 60 metres (197 feet)

Part of the Nepean Wall, this is a great site for those chasing the elusive Crayfish. The wall here has its top in around 18 metres and drops to the south to 60 metres. While the wall here is spectacular the majority of Crayfish and in fact the dive will be on the plateau. This dive can only be done on the slack water at the end of the ebb or outgoing tide and only when the sea outside the heads is calm.

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.
