I'm looking for info from those that know the Bunurong area. I would love to try some shore diving down there.

Are there good locations that offer easy shore entries for someone carrying a fair sized camera rig? I'm particularly looking for sites that have good photography potential - eg good fish life, colourful sponges, bryozoans, sea fans etc would be great if possible.

If you know any suitable sites I would love to hear further details on how to get there, parking, best entry/exit point (and whether it's sand or rocky), best tide etc.

In particular what wind and swell direction is best for the area?

Any info much appreciated

Cape paterson, drop your gear at the boat ramp and park up top. Nice beach to walk in from past the "bath"

If you have an ipad/tablet, parks vic has a field guide app for this park that you can download from this link: Get Field Guide App . I haven't seen it but claims to not be all glossy pics, with some park access notes & maps.

I recently saw a parks map of this marine park which, as they now often do, has some bathymetry from their high resolution Lidar data set. - Not at full resolution mind you, but enough to be helpful for prospecting reefs and other structure.

Ok - I have now found it again, and hacked it out of a larger document as a single page PDF. Can't seem to upload to diveoz for general distribution, but If you are happy to PM me with your email address I can send it to you.
