Every year between the months of May and September, thousands of Giant Australian Cuttlefish (Sepia apama) descend on the rocky coastline between Fitzgerald Bay and False Bay. These amazing ‘chameleons of the sea’ are one of the largest species of cuttlefish found in the world; and can reach up to 60 cm in length and can weigh up to 5 kg.
The Club tends to stay at the Point Lowly Lighthouse cottages, and subject to availability, try to stay during the June long weekend.
