Shallow Inlet

Shallow Inlet is located on the south coast of Victoria, just west of Wilsons Promontory, approximately 180kms (165 minutes travel time) by road from the Melbourne CBD, accessed via the small South Gippsland town of Sandy Point.
Shallow Inlet is a small tidal waterway located on the eastern side of Waratah Bay. Although much of the inlet dries at low water, and the depth in the entrance varies, it is suitable for small recreational and fishing vessels.

Navigational Information

Navigational aids within the Gippsland Regional Ports conform to the International Association of Lighthouse Authorities (IALA) Buoyage System "A". Starboard-hand (or right side) marks are green, whilst port-hand (or left side) marks are red. Cardinal marks are yellow and black; Special marks are yellow and isolated danger marks black and red.

In using the system it is essential to remember that the direction of buoyage is taken from the seaward entrance of these ports. When returning towards the entrance the situation would be reversed.

Shallow Inlet Channel and Entrance

The channel is well defined and marked, however the entrance may not be “navigable” in severe weather or during adverse sea conditions. Vessel operators are advised that there may be significant changes to the channel configuration in the vicinity of and including the entrance to Shallow Inlet.
Vessel operators are advised to operate with extreme caution when navigating this area.

Boating Facilities

Vessel operators are requested to observe the time limits of the statewide “Colour Coded Berthing Zones” when using public facilities within the Port/waterway.
