Go Scuba Diving on a sunken war ship
The EX HMAS Brisbane was intentionally sunk 12 years ago for the purpose of creating a dive spot that would draw scuba enthusiasts from near and far, so far it has not disappointed. Since it’s sinking, a diverse underwater culture has thrived on the old war ship creating a vibrant diving experience with plenty of colourful aquatic life to experience. To make it even more exciting the ship sits just outside what is referred to as Humpback highway and these majestic creatures can commonly be spotted making their migration journey through the winter.
