Directions: Travel down the road behind the caravan park and oval off the main street of point Lonsdale. You can see the kelp and reef from the shore. Enter down the Bluestone stairs next to the boat ramp
Description: You will fin out over small kelp for about 20-30 metres, then the depth drops a little and the reef becomes visible. Not an abundance, but quite a lot of life in the area. in one half hour dive we spotted many flathead, weedy seadragons, old wives and zebra fishes.We also sighted (on two occasions) a draughtboard shark around 1.5 metres.

Fiddler rays are also often in the area. A good little shore dive to compliment your day in the Queenscliff/Point Lonsdale area.
