Smith Rock is one of the most notorious reefs off Brisbane, as this jagged rocky outcrop has claimed three ships over the years. Located off the eastern side of Moreton Island, Smith Rock is also a wonderful dive site, but is often overlooked as it is a tricky site to anchor on. In depths from 3 metres to 20 metres divers at Smith Rock can explore caves, gutters and ledges coloured by soft corals, gorgonians, tubastra corals and hard corals. Painted crayfish are particularly common in the ledges here, which also accommodate banded boxer shrimps, squirrelfish, gropers and slipper crays. Also seen at Smith Rock are moray eels, wobbegongs, brown-banded bamboo sharks, turtles, batfish and a wide range of reef fish.
