The HMAS Adelaide is an Australian Naval Destroyer which was sunk in early May to create an artificial dive reef, the first of its kind in NSW. The dive site is located off Avoca Beach near Terrigal, which is about 2hrs north of Sydney. I did my first dive there on 29th May 2011 and below are some of the shots taken.

Scuba Diving at Currarong

Went scuba diving down at Currarong on Saturday. Saw schools of Yellow Tail Fusiliers and Old Wives. Also saw two Wobbegong sharks, 2 moray eels and a massive bull ray! Below is a video of the dive, the first part shows the start of the dive, when we just descended. The second part, which is about 0:41 into the video, shows the Wobbegong Shark. The video quality isn’t that great as it was shot with my compact camera.
