Hutchinson Shoal Dive Site

Moreton Island, Queensland 4025

Images

Hutchinson Shoal is the largest reef system off Brisbane and also one of the least dived. Located north of Moreton Island, Hutchinson Shoal is washed by strong currents and offers no protection in rough weather. But what is does offer is a rocky terrain with countless caves, ledges, overhangs, gutters and pinnacles in depths from 10 metres to 38 metres.

Exploring this rocky reef, divers will find black coral trees, gorgonian fans, soft corals, sponges and lovely tubastra corals. Diving anywhere on this large reef divers will encounter reef fish, pelagic fish, turtles, moray eels, crayfish, eagle rays, wobbegongs, stingrays and gropers. This site also has a large admiralty anchor, over 3 metres long, whose history is unknown.
