Report Number: 214

Since 1985, five site inspections have been carried out at the Port Gregory whaling site, including the current visit. An opportunistic visit was made to this site in January 2006 in conjunction with test excavations that were carried out in Kalbarri (a site believed to be associated with George Grey), to record its GPS position. It was also to monitor the condition of the site, including any newly exposed or more recent disturbances to the site since the last inspection. A discussion on the artefacts raised during the 2003 visit has also been included in this report. A day trip inspection was also made on 13 February 2006 following reports of exposed material in the intertidal zone.
