Scuba Diving in Grange 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 Grange Tyre Reef, a popular site for divers of all levels, is an artificial reef made up entirely of old tyres, laid there since the 1970’s. Marine life in the site is extraordinary. You will see from cuttlefish, old wives and strongies, to Blue Devils and occasionally some wobbegong sharks.
