Point Lonsdale Township Reef is is another beginner snorkel dive that is easy to access, when the tide is out. This reef lies just to the south of the Point Lonsdale front beach, where the cliffs begin. After going down the steps from the street parking, just walk along the beach to the South until you come to a small rock platform. Enter the water at a suitable place and follow the shallow reef around to the south. You can dive to any depth up to 5 metres, but if you venture out too far the tidal influence increases. There are lots of small fish that inhabit this low reef, so you may see the unexpected.
Do not dive here on the rising tide as the swell invariably increases as the ebb tide slackens. Do not attempt to dive if there is any hint of a swell, as you may upset the local surfing fraternity.
