Wild Dog Cove is one of the better onshore diving spots on the Victorian West Coast being a 500 metre wide bay on the western side of Peterborough. It is a circular, south-facing bay, backed by 10 metre high red limestone cliffs, with a shallow bay floor dominated by offshore limestone reefs that are reasonably acessible and sheltered. The bay has 1 km of shoreline, with four small pocket beaches and one longer beach adjacent to the Great Ocean Road. All the beaches are located at the base of the cliffs and receive low to often calm waves, particularly at low tide.
A foreshore reserve backs all the beaches. The four small beaches lie in a row on the eastern side of the bay. Each is backed by the red bluffs and is well protected by the shallow bay reefs. Access to each is by steps or a climb down the bluffs. The 500 metre long main beach parallels the road and has vegetated bluffs, a car park and steps in the centre of the beach. Great for family picnics and snorkelling among the weed gardens in calm weather.
