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.

Did my first double-dive on the Ex HMAS Brisbane recently and was not disappointed. Really good wreck, minimum current (I think I was quite lucky with that), OK vis at about 12m.

I did the Scuba Skills Update with Scuba World followed the next day by two wreck dives on the ex-HMAS Brisbane. The dives were awesome - our dive groups were small which made for a better experience and Jeremy, our group's guide, was always pointing out interesting things for us to see. Visibility seemed much improved inside the wreck as... More

This was my second trip to the Brisbane with Scuba World, Mike went out of his way to do a refresher for my son who hadn't dived in a while on the morning prior to our Brisbane dive which allowed my son to dive with me which was awesome. Thanks heaps Mike for going way beyond what is expected from... More
