    Yeah the bar is pretty visible near the mouth Rosco.....a rock wall on one side and a starboard marker on the other side.Just a bit of a tip might be to run a good track or plot some waypoints on the way out in case your thinking about coming back in the dark coz none of the beacons are lit at night.6 knots from the boat ramp to the Eastern side of the caravan park and don't forget the report when you get home.
    Good luck.

    Muddy explained pretty well- it really is a good bar (to me anyway) but like all bars tide/swell affects it- been going out for years. generally it has to be pretty big easterly swell to affect the bar.

    It really only causes problem with large swell hitting headland then creating 90degree pressure waves off the headland itself which stand up out front/river mouth due to being resaonably shallow( you will see / get the idea when you 1st see bar makeup). Generally people get /have trouble by heading straight out (pass rocks) and a set curls around the corner.

    Generally i find a southerly swell slides across the front without standing up so much.

    If it is getting up once you past green can point the nose to bustard head and go. Just watch the bank on your port side though, it can extend out to sea a fair way pass the green can.

    ps also be very careful of the red can (2nd last lead out) as it was well up/positioned on the the big sand on your starbord side as you leave the 6knots zone (rocky point) just past camping ground- in april (when was I there again Phil/Muddy?) that red can was absolute high & dry at low tide - hopefully it may have been moved now. I know of numerous people who have hit that bank by being to close to the red can.

    These are my observations others may a differnet opinion
