Smith Rock Dive Site

Moreton Island,

Moreton Island National Park

Moreton Island, Brisbane Area
Free Entry
Moreton Island National Park offers a playground of beaches, dunes, coastal heath, woodlands and shallow freshwater lagoons. Add a rocky outcrop and the historic Cape Moreton lighthouse and you have a recipe for discovery and relaxation.

China Wall Dive Site

Moreton Island,
Located on the exposed eastern side of Brisbane’s Moreton Island, China Wall is an unusual dive site for the area as the reef is dominated by kelp rather than coral. Waving beds of brown kelp are more common in southern Australia and these ones look very out of place with tropical fish swimming around them.
