Anchorage:

Enter the anchorage by keeping close in to southern shore in the lee of the cape. There is a reef to the north of the bay. Anchor close in to cliffs, see photo No 2 below for a distinctive rock formation opposite the anchorage. Some swell may lick around the tip of the cape but the holding is good and the anchorage generally comfortable

Comments:
The bay provides better holding than Pondalowie. It is uninhabited and provides a perfect stop over point to and from Port Lincoln. The high cliffs of the cape provide excellent shelter from strong southerly weather. There is a beautiful beach and good fishing. – Oct 2011

Anchor at 35 14.568S 136 49.827 E in about 4 meters of water and this allows plenty of swinging room from the cliffs.
