I don't know any marks down there but I recently did a video on finding new marks and the coastal photography section may help in finding accessible rocks to stand on

be careful what you wish for - if all you have on offer are blanks, pin whiting, coalies and rockling (within your zone) - you might be better off at the screens, making rigs and tidying up all your gear :)

light gear, calm weather and braid if you can and rockling and coalies can make for an enjoyable session.
