Shelter from E – SE – S
Indicative Anchoring Position
34° 52.0’S 136° 00.1’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.
A shallow bank extends between the northern end of Taylor Island and the much smaller Owen Islet. This provides good shelter for the anchorage which is at the north-western end of Taylor Island.
The bottom is patchy weed on sand, and the holding is good. Shore access is possible but there is very little beach area for walking.
