The Singapore Shipwreck Dive Site - Keswick Island

Keswick Island, Mackay Area

The Singapore was bound for Sydney from Hong Kong when she struck what is now called 'Singapore Rock' sometime in January 1877. Fortunately, no lives were lost.

The Singapore was a 964 ton single screw steamer with a length of 87 metres and a width of 10 metres. Despite its size, the ship had not been seen for decades until recently when it was dived on for the first time.

Singapore Rock is just off beautiful Singapore Bay, on Keswick Island. This area is a designated Marine Park Green Zone and is home to an array of turtles and magnificent fish. This wreck site provides amazing diving and all are within a short distance from Keswick Island, and with relatively few divers having accessed this site, the coral formations and variety of marine life is outstanding.

Diving tours and training are available through Keswick Island Day Trips or Megaforce Charters.
