THE CATLINS: Porpoise Bay
PORPOISE BAY. (SW of WAIKAWA.) THE CATLINS.
SOUTH HEAD. (46d, 39`, 50S, – 169d,06`, 00E)
There is visible evidence of the stonework of a standard walled barrack block on the headland. Near the Curio shop, west end of the bay, (46d, 39`, 45S, – 169, 05`, 40S), MAS located the outlines of three 47m x 11m Junks. Two were within their standard stoned harbours with their anchors out. The other was unprotected, presumably wrecked, or perhaps cannibalised for spares.
