The position of the HMAS Brisbane overlooking the Alexandra Headland and Mooloolaba area is a must see. Sit and watch the ships pass or the surfers enjoy the waves. A lovely park area for a picnic or if feeling energetic, a walk along the beached area is a must

A fantastic dive site. It would take dozens of dives to cover it and the ship is purposely prepared to penetrate the wreck with visible entries and exits throughout. Depth at the ship's bottom is about 28m but there is plenty of marine life action between 12m & 18m. The wreck is an easy 10 to 15 minute boat ride... More

This was my 2 boys and my first wreck dive. I was impressed with the decommissioning of the HMAS Brisbane, it allows novice divers to feel extremely comfortable exploring the wreck knowing that there is always an easy exit if needed. The Scuba World crew were great, the briefings were comprehensive without being long winded ensuring a safe dive where... More

If you like purpose build wrecks then this fits the bill. Big spaces to enter and exit, surprisingly little muck to be stirred up and good quantity of marine life. Done and crossed off the list, nothing memorable but that could be because the dive operator was a bit dosorganised, not even a drink of water between dive

I've dove on several purposely sunk ships that were intended to become artificial reefs for divers to visit. The is was the best. A flash luge is mandatory, and highly recommended, if you plan on going in but I was never in really dark water. There are large clan holes cut into the sides, deck, and bottom, so natural light...

Great dive team, wreck is in great condition and has things to see at perfect depths for any level diver. A good rust dive and more than enough critters for anyone. You'll need more than 2 dives to see it all in detail, plan what you like to see with ScubaWorld and they'll look after you.
