HMAS Brisbane Dive Site

Mooloolaba, Sunshine Coast Area

Just a few kilometres from Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast, HMAS Brisbane is a retired Royal Australian Navy guided missile destroyer that is now one of Australia’s top dive sites. The ship was scuttled in July 2005 - the 133 metre wreck is sitting upright on her keel, lodged in sand 27 metres below sea level. The main decks sit at a depth of 15 metres with the ship's funnel only three metres below the surface. Open water divers can explore the top structure and its large population of marine life, while suitably qualified divers can enter many compartments further down, including the kitchen, engine room and boiler room. The site is part of the HMAS Brisbane Conservation Park, managed by the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service, and is teeming with clown fish, colourful wrasse, octopi, lion fish, turtles, gropers and more.
