Information

The remains of a 1906 engineering endeavor can be viewed as a strange gateway in the cliff at the base of Point Ronald. The gate fronts a tunnel bored through 90m of rock to the Southern Ocean beyond. Gates were opened in attempts to break a seasonal bar that periodically blocks the river mouth. Nowadays the bar is broken mechanically under a strict protocol when waters reach a preordained level.Caution: Mouth conditions are notoriously perilous. Steep banks and complicated nearshore currents make this beach unsuitable for swimming in all conditions.Access the beach via a 600m walk along the banks of the Gellibrand River.
