Curtain Artificial Reef Dive Site

Moreton Island, Brisbane Area

Curtin Artificial Reef is a popular dive site in Moreton Bay and is easily accessible from Brisbane. Since 1968, the Underwater Research Group of Queensland has been sinking large vessels, cars, tires and pontoons at this site to create a haven for the local tropical fish, gropers, trevally, abundant wobbegongs, rays and other schooling fish. This great underwater wrecking yard features 32 sunken vessels, the largest being former 50 metre coal barge the Bremer, which - like most of the other wrecks - has been cleared of obstructions so divers can safely enter and explore these impressive playground submerged in depths from 12 to 28 metres.
