Description

Refuge Cove, North Wall, on the eastern side of Wilsons Promontory, is suitable for both snorkelling and scuba diving. It has boulders sloping down to a sandy bottom at a depth of 14 metres. Refuge Cove, North Wall lies in the Wilsons Promontory Marine Park facing south-east into Bass Strait. There are groups of boulders forming, swim throughs, caves, and overhangs.

The north wall of refuge Cove is an easy dive but certainly not boring. There are numerous boulders covered in kelp offering swim throughs and large quantities of marine life. It's not uncommon to see schools of Bait Fish being followed by schools of Salmon. Other fish including Blue Throat Wrasse, Long Nose Boarfish and Barber Perch are also present and in large numbers.

The best way to see this site is to be dropped off at the point of the cove and swim west into the cove itself.

The site is sheltered from most wind conditions even when easterlies prevent diving elsewhere. However, it can be prone to surge during an easterly swell.
