This site is approx 2km offshore between Barwon heads and Ocean grove and is accessible only from a boat. This site has limited access and is accessible via a commercial dive charter (Dive Victoria is a good option) Alternatively if you are using your own boat you must book a window (2hrs) for a mooring via parks Victoria.There are good moorings fixed to the bottom and they are well maintained.

This is a nice dive for divers between 16m to 33m so it can be accessed by all level divers. (staying within their level of cert) This site is affected by currents and can be quite demanding at times, vis is also affected by surging currents and may vary from 1m to about 20m. for those suitably certified if you swim to the funnels you can drop down the funnels and you end up in the engine room. Also if you make your way to the galley on the mid deck towards the bow there is a mural painted on one of the walls which makes for a good photo. At this stage there is very little silting but I do believe this may not be the case within years to come, so you must asses this site to your own experience and cert level to determine how you will plan your dive.
