Papua New Guinea
|LLG||Louisiade Rural Local Level Government Area|
It is 162.4 km from the closest island, Loa Boloba, which is a tiny coral islet within the fringing reef near Cape Deliverance, the south east point of Rossel Island (Yela) in the Louisiade Archipelago, and belongs to Milne Bay province, Samarai-Murua District, Louisiade Rural Local Level Government Area.
Pocklington Reef sits on top of Pocklington Ridge, which extends northeast from Rossel Island. The reef is 32 km long and up to 4 km wide. Its longer axis is northeast-southwest. The rim of the reef encloses a deep lagoon. The northern rim reaches closer to the surface, and several above water rocks with heights between 0.9 and 3 metres high lie along its length. There is a small spit of sand about the size of a football field (less than one hectare) at the northeast end. There is a shipwreck at that location.
