Indicative Anchoring Position

35° 14.6’S   136° 59.3’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.

Marion Bay is a large open bay and the north eastern part is very exposed to westerly swell. However, a good anchorage exists in the western end of the bay immediately south of the long jetty.

The bottom is sand with some clear patches amongst the weed, and the holding is good.
