The Ex-HMAS Tobruk rests on the seabed in a area just North of Hervey Bay. She came to rest on her starboard side and does not disappoint as Australia latest dive wreck!

The unexpected orientation only makes for a more interesting and unusual dive. The Tobruk is like no other wreck in the world! She offers a unique diving experience with excellent access and awe inspiring scale. Her stern doors are open revealing her colossal main tank deck and providing a full-length 120 metre swim-through experience.

The depth ranges from 12 to 30 metres with ample interesting sections for Open Water and Advanced divers to feel comfortable and challenged.

Colourful reef fish and anemones will greet excited divers as they descend. Octopus, Lion and Puffer fish and sparkling schools of Baitfish may part as you swim through the second-to-none cavernous tank deck.

For those experienced enough to descend to the seafloor, grouper, cod, wobbegong sharks and rays will await your company.

Their dive departs daily aboard our dedicated high-speed dive vessel. For comfort and safety we limit divers to 10 per trip ensuring a personal experience. You will be guided by members of their highly qualified PADI dive.
