The scuttling of the ex-HMAS Tobruk in mid-2018 has created a world class dive wreck and artifical reef in Wide Bay waters just off the Fraser Coast . This development has added yet another major new bucket list item for your next visit to our region.

The 127m heavy-lift former navy ship which was involved in 26 major operations will spend the rest of its life bringing joy to thousands who will explore the ship underwater as a dive wreck.  The new dive is host to a thriving and rapidly expanding marine ecosystem.
