Indicative Anchoring Position

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.
Snellings Beach is an attractive sandy beach about 600 m long. There is a partially submerged rocky reef about 150 m long running north west from the north eastern headland, and care must be taken to avoid this. The holding is good in sand with very little weed, but the anchorage can be uneasy if a westerly swell is running. Middle River enters at the eastern end of the bay, and a dinghy landing is possible on the beach if the shore break permits.
