Moreton Island, Brisbane Area
A small concrete cherub once marked the main entrance to this hidden cave off Moreton Island. While the guardian has since disappeared, this underwater world remains to be discovered by the adventurous diver. Cherub's Cave is a large, circular cave, roughly 20 by 15 metres, with six exits providing a 'choose-your-own-adventure' style dive. The entire area is surrounded by rocky gullies, smaller caves and overhangs to explore. Pelagic life, including barracuda, kingfish and trevally, patrol the area, and divers will also encounter turtles, gropers and wobbegong sharks. Grey nurse sharks gather in the gutters at Cherub's Cave over winter, and make for very interesting dive companions.
