- ABOUT THE SPOT
Scuba Diving in Lumb Wreck, 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 H.A. Lumb is a 24 m/78 ft long steel trawler that was purposely sunk in 1994 by the Diving Association, thus creating an artificial reef close to the shore. She lies upright on the bottom, at 50 m/164 ft west of the Noarlunga tyre reef, in 20 m/65 ft of water and at 2.5 km/2 mi in the west of Noarlunga Jetty. Access is by boat from O’Sullivan’s Beach boat ramp.The wreck is covered with corals and is easy to penetrate, since openings were enlarged and unstable objects removed.
The site is addressed to advanced scuba divers. Maximum depth: 22 m/72 ft.
