Twofold Bay

Twofold Bay divides into two parts: Calle Calle Bay to the North is more open to the ocean winds & swell. The larger, southern bay is more protected with a number of coves and inlets. The bay is up to 35m deep with a total area of 35sq km. Only seaworthy boats should venture out onto the bay as conditions can change quickly and seas become quite rough.

Wonboyn Lake

Largely surrounded by East Boyd and Nadgee State Forests as well as the Nadgee Nature Reserve, the picturesque, 3.6 sq km Wonboyn Lake is fed by the Wonboyn River and is largely navigable, except nearer the entrance where it shoals. Depths can be less than 0.5m at low tide. The village general store supplies food, tackle, bait and fuel, with the boat ramp just down from the store at Myrtle Cove. Google Map

Nadgee

Nadgee River

Nadgee River is only accessible to dedicated and prepared bush walkers using a 4WD vehicle. The last 5 to 6km must be walked. The river is wholly within the Nadgee Nature Reserve which is largely undisturbed and uninhabited. The river is intermittently open to the ocean. Nadgee Lake is much further to the south near the Victorian border and for all practical purposes is inaccessible. Park Map
