The Blowhole

Lady Elliot Island, Bundaberg Area
Lady Elliot Island has many wonderful dive sites, but the most dramatic dive site off this coral cay would have to be The Blowhole. Located off the eastern side of the island, this spectacular L-shaped cave opens on the reef top and exits on the reef wall.

Lady Elliot Island

Lady Elliot Island, Bundaberg Area
Where else in the Great Barrier Reef can you walk less than 100 metres out of your door and slip on a snorkel, mask and flippers and be immersed in one of the seven wonders of the natural world? Lady Elliot Island is the Southernmost island on the Great Barrier Reef and is home to nesting turtles, manta rays, migrating whales, resident and visiting bird populations among the natural and abundant reef life.

Anchor Bommie Dive Site

Lady Elliot Island, Bundaberg Area
Free Entry
Lady Elliot Island has many wonderful dive sites, but one of its most impressive is Anchor Bommie. This tower of coral sits on the sandy sea floor at 21 metres and stands 10 metres tall, a very imposing sight.

Severance Shipwreck Dive Site

Lady Elliot Island, Bundaberg Area
Free Entry
Quite a few ships have come to grief on the fringing reef around Lady Elliot Island, but only one of these can be dived, that is the Severance. This fully intact yacht sank in 1998 and still has much of its rigging in place that is now covered in glorious soft corals.

Musgrave Channel

Lady Musgrave Island, Gladstone Area
For those after a fast-paced drift dive at Lady Musgrave Island then try a dive through the Musgrave Channel. Best done on the incoming tide, so you end up in the lagoon, this channel is a sensational dive and only 13 metres deep.

Manta Ray Bommie Dive SIte

Lady Musgrave Island, Gladstone Area
Free Entry
Manta Ray Bommie is not just one coral head, but a collection of bommies off the western side of Lady Musgrave Island. These bommies come in a range of sizes, in depths from 12 to 20 metres, with the biggest ones decorated with gorgonians, soft corals and sponges.

Hiros Cave and The Tubes

Lady Elliot Island, Bundaberg Area
The eastern side of Lady Elliot Island is not always dived as it is more exposed to the weather, but this part of the island has some lovely dive sites. A feature of this part of the fringing reef is a wall that drops from 14 metres to 22 metres.

Musgrave Dropoff

Lady Musgrave Island, Gladstone Area
On the southern side of Lady Musgrave Island the reef edge drops from 10 metres to 25 metres and forms an amazing wall of coral. Often simply called Musgrave Dropoff, this extensive wall is rarely dived, but you can jump in anywhere along its length and have a great dive.
