Hole In The Wall

Heron Island, Gladstone Area

Fortunately there is a lot more to see than a Hole In The Wall at this dive site at Heron Island. Located north of the harbour, this dive site has coral walls, gutters, caves and ledges to explore in depths to 20 metres. Residing in the many caves and ledges are moray eels, crayfish, tasselled wobbegongs, squirrelfish, soldierfish and stingrays. Likely other sites at Heron Island, Hole In The Wall is often done as a drift dive, allowing divers an effort free ride through the site. However, you will find yourself stopping from time to time to watch turtles, schools of hussars, batfish, trevally and maybe a whitetip reef shark. This site is also home to a great range of reef fish and invertebrate species, but you have to stop and search for some of the smaller critters found here, such as nudibranchs, blennies and pipefish.
