Wellington & Wellington Bay

Wellington Bay is 4.5 miles NW of West Point, southeast of Wellers Bay. Wellington Bay is a large bight laying between Hucks Point on the WNW and West Point. Caution should be used in poor visibility as the north shore provides poor radar reflecting qualities. The most notable landmark in Wellington is the white water tower with its green horizontal band which is easily visible from Wellington Bay. There are 13 radio towers visible 4 miles NE of Hucks Point with air obstruction lights which are easy to see. A microwave tower is located 3.6 miles north of town also showing air obstruction lights.
