End Point West Beach Boat Ramp
Distance 5km

The Glenelg tyre reef is a series of tyre tetrahedrons, set down as an artificial reef.

Set up in 1983, 5kms west of Glenelg, 500m south east of the barge in 18m of water.

As a fish breeding ground it has been very successful with large quantities of whiting, bullseyes, strongies, silver dimmer, old wives and spider crabs.

The main hazard is getting loose regs and gauges caught in tyre straps.
