HMAS Brisbane Dive
HMAS Brisbane provides one of the best wreck dive sites in the world. She was sunk approximately 10 kilometres (6 miles) off the coast of Mooloolaba, Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia on Sunday, 31 July 2005 in 30 metres (115 ft) of water.
HMAS Brisbane settled upright with numerous entry & exit points for divers. The top of her funnels can be seen lying just three metres below the water at low tide.

Ex HMAS Brisbane artificial reef provides excellent scuba diving all year round. Divers with varying levels of experience and certification — from open water level certificates to advanced wreck divers — will be able to enjoy this dive site.
HMAS Brisbane has been kept in original condition, where possible, to make it visually appealing and interesting for divers to explore. Access holes allow passage into the forward engine room, boiler room, gun mount and the ship's interior, where divers can view living and sleeping quarters used by the crew during the ship's service. The smoke stack starts at just three metres below the surface and the ship itself is eight stories high and seven cricket pitches long.
Access inside the HMAS Brisbane is optimal, with all internal areas offering three points of natural light, with wide, open entry and exit swim-throughs. It is the only purpose-designed dive wreck in Australia where you can actually dive inside the engine and boiler rooms.
