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.

Waldergrave Island is a rocky island very close to the coast near Cape Finnis which is just north of Elliston. A small sandy beach near its north-eastern tip provides a suitable area to anchor. The depth increases rapidly and the bottom is mostly sand with a few rocky patches. The holding is good if care is taken in choosing a large sandy area for the anchor.

Dinghy access ashore is difficult due to the steeply sloping shore line but may be possible in calm conditions.
