Ex-HMAS Tobruk Dive Site Open

We’re excited to be able to advise that the Ex-HMAS Tobruk dive site will open to recreational divers on Monday the 25th February, 2019. Since scuttling the Vessel, Birdon has invested a substantial amount of time, money and effort into ensuring that the public are delivered a world-class dive wreck, as we set out to do in the beginning. Birdon would like to thank the Queensland government and our subcontractor Subsea Works, for their assistance and support in the delivery of what will be an internationally-renowned military dive wreck.

The response from divers who have already experienced the Ex-HMAS Tobruk has been overwhelmingly positive. Over one hundred species of fish, including grouper, trevally and wrasse have made a home of the Ex-HMAS Tobruk and an abundance of marine life have colonised the metal surfaces of the wreck. Additional external and internal holes have been cut into the ship to allow greater accessibility for divers and offer a unique look at the Ex-HMAS Tobruk. Birdon is extremely proud to have preserved a piece of Australian military history in this unique way.

A variety of dives are available for open water level certificate divers to advanced wreck divers. Bookings can be made online at:
