Premise
“Just past Apollo Bay, off the world famous Great Ocean Road, Marengo Reefs Marine Sanctuary protects 12ha of ocean waters. About 150m offshore, this sanctuary protects a reef system known as Little Henty Reef. Two sections of the reef, the inner and outer reef, are usually exposed and separated by a narrow channel known as 'The Gap'. Composed of sandstone they support wonderful intertidal and subtidal reefs which are packed with sea life. Visitors exploring the intertidal reef may come across many invertebrates including sea snails, tubeworms and abalone. In slightly deeper waters there are beautiful seaweed gardens.”

“This great little 9 hole golf course is a challeng at the best of times and the weather can add a different perspective any day you choose to play. Even if golf isn't your game, walks around the edge are enhanced by the stunning views out to the ocean and surrounding mountains. Well worth a visit.”
