Indicative Anchoring Positions
34° 57.6’S 135° 59.5’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.
Memory Cove is a beautiful anchorage located about two miles north of Cape Catastophe, with tree covered hills each side and a lovely white sandy beach which fronts a bush camping area. The bottom is gritty sand with patchy weed and the holding is good.
Beach access is easy, and a scenic walk to the northern headland is very worthwhile.
Strong tidal flows exist in Thorny Passage in this vicinity which sometimes result in unexpected turbulence.
