Porpoise Bay -- or more correctly Dyer Island -- has a bachelor colony of Australian sea-lions. Divers will be interested by the wreck of 'The Shark,' which is visible from the shore.

Stopped off at the Parker Point bus stop (number 5) which was to one end of Porpoise Bay. Nice Bay with yachts anchored nearby. After a short walk down the stairs you get down the pristine white sand beach. Nice Stop.

Great place for a private swim especially in the evening! There are not much people around so you can just sit with a convenient stove and have a picnic on your own. Great place for a little privacy.
