Indicative Anchoring Position

34° 53.5’S   137° 01.7’E

Note.    Indicative anchoring positions are for reference only and should not be used as waypoints.  The best position for anchoring depends on many factors including vessel draft, tide, and forecast wind.

Corny Point is located at the north-western tip of the ‘foot’ of Yorke Peninsula, and the small holiday township is about 2 miles to the east. Anchoring is possible anywhere along this part of the coast, but the bottom is foul in places, and snagged or lost anchors are a risk.

The shore line here is very flat, so although there is a narrow sandy beach, the distance across the tidal flat to the water line can be quite long at low tide. Care is therefore needed when going ashore.
