Stenhouse Bay is a small settlement at the southern end of the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia, on the eastern side of Innes National Park. This is a dive spot which is not for the faint-hearted, and should definitely be attempted when the swell is at a minimum.

Scuba Diving in Glenelg Tyre Reef, Adelaide, South Australia Australia
The metropolitan area of Adelaide is famous for the variety and great number of diving sites it has to offer (you can visit here some of the most impressive shipwrecks in the whole world). The waters have the perfect temperature for scuba diving (warm during the summer and crystal clear during the winter), and are generally friendly and uncrowded.
The Glenelg Tyre Reef, an impressive and popular site for advanced divers mainly, is an artificial reef made up entirely of old tyres, which were laid there in the 1983. Marine life is extraordinary as it is a breeding site for many fish.
Be prepared to see hundreds of whitings, cuttlefish, old wives, strongies, silver drummers and many spider crabs. Bear in mind that this is a fishing site as well, so you should be careful of the fishing boats and the anchors.
Average viz: 10 m/32 ft. Maximum depth: 18 m/59 ft.
