This is an interesting site, easier to dive then Willis Point (which is next door), but with less life then either Willis Point or Henderson Point (both within a few minutes drive). Biggest downside to this site is that there isn't easy shore access - the nearest entry point to the parking lot is over 200m away, down a rough pathway. Additional entry points can be found even farther along the path, but by the time you hit the first entry point you'll be bushed, and not wanting to walk any further. Some sort of tank/weight belt carrying cart may be in order for this site. Entry at the first point is easy - you just walk in off the beach, and swim straight out from shore. There is an underwater gully at this site, which makes for an interesting bottom contour to follow. A nice dive, but Willis or Henderson point are a hell of a lot easier to get to, and have nearly identical life.
