Bass & Flinders

 

The site is quite shallow at first, 4-5 metres, slowly descending to 7 metres as you head east. Kelp runs along the shoreline and after reaching its most southern point breaks into large sections of boulders that extend south. There's no point in heading south out on the sand, there's only sand, sand and more sand. As a drift dive, you shouldn't exceed 60 minutes to reach Oak Park.

Located on the southern-most point of the Cronulla peninsula, the entry/exit point can be accessed via a walkway that leads west from the monument (highly visible at the end of Gowrie St). A set of stairs leads off the walkway, leading down to the water's edge. The entry point is just to the right of a large green pipe. The entry point can also serve as the exit.

Comments: This can be a great site on a good day, the problem is most people only dive it on a bad day and hence think it is a bad site. I have had some fantastic dives here and seen every thing from seadragons to massive wobbygongs
