Nursery Reef

Rainbow Beach, Gympie Area

Nursery Reef is a shallow rocky reef off Rainbow Beach that is always full of surprises. The least dived site in the area, due to its shallow depth and exposed location, Nursery Reef is only 5 metres to 7 metres deep. Although shallow, this rocky reef is decorated with a good range of hard corals, soft corals and sponges. While small tropical reef fish dart about the reef, divers will have to search the countless ledges and caves to find the reefs more interesting inhabitants. Species to look out for at Nursery Reef include moray eels, ornate wobbegong sharks, crayfish, boxer shrimps, stonefish, lionfish, brown-banded bamboo sharks, scorpionfish, blue-spotted stingrays and nudibranchs.
