Anchorage:

A small marina and boat haven have been contructed in the north of the bay. The pile beacons east from the entrance are cardinal marks marking a reef. Do NOT try and enter between them. The approach is made by running from the south close in to the marina wall. See below for a recent safe path. Care should also be taken when approaching and leaving the marina area as there are several moorings some hunderds of meters out from the entrance

Comments:

There is room for half a dozen boats on the newly contsructed pontoons. It is a short walk to the pub at Arno Bay or you call call the publican on 08 8268 0001who will porbably come and pick you up and can provide a key. Arno Bay is 50 nm from Reevesby Lagoon and provides a good starting point for exploring northern Spencer Gulf.
