New trip Release!!!!
Queens Birthday Weekend!
Come join the RAD crew for a long weekend away and visit a world-class artificial reef and diving site...Ex-HMAS Brisbane!!
The HMAS Brisbane was purposely sunk in July 2005 to create an artificial reef off the Sunshine Coast. It now lies in 27m of water. It is 113m long and has served in both Vietnam and Kuwait. After 6 years of being in the water she is teeming with life from encrusting corals and algae to big pelagic fish that patrol the surrounding blue ocean for bait fish.
