Scuba Diving in John Robb Wreck, North Haven, 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. John Robb was a 7 m/22 ft long barque that sunk in 1910, as a result of a strong storm.
The wreck is located approximately at 15 km/9 mi away from the shore of North Haven, but it is very difficult to find, since the only thing actually visible is the bow which sticks out of the sandy bottom (you will need a GPS to locate the exact spot). GPS Coordinates are : 34:58:163 S 138:28:832 E . The site is addressed to advanced scuba divers as there are dangerous currents in the area .
Maximum depth: 20 m/65 ft.
