How can you help? We need

  • Meet at the boat ramp to set up gear 30min before the dive time. 


Bad Weather 

  • We have booked the permits through Scuba World. If they cancel due to bad weather then we will get a full refund. But it needs to be their decision not ours. 


Now What??? Things you need to do if you want to come diving...

HMAS Brisbane 

The Ex HMAS Brisbane Wreck is a world class dive site and one of the best diving spots in Australia. It is located close to Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.

The HMAS Brisbane is a 115 m former Australian war ship sunk in 2005 to create an artificial Reef and dive site.

Dive site

The HMAS Brisbane lies in 28 meters of water on a sandy bottom. The main deck is about 15 meters deep. Due to very good diving conditions with good visibility and mostly no current, the Brisbane Wreck is a very easy dive site suitable for all levels of divers. For the beginners, it is a great chance to dive an easy wreck. The more experienced divers will enjoy penetration inside the HMAS Brisbane itself as large holes have been made to allow easy entry inside the shipwreck. You can explore the boiler room and the engine room if you so desire!
