Scuba Diving in MV Malabar Wreck, Sydney, New South Wales Australia

Maximum Depth:
10m/32.8ft
MV Malabar is a wreck site on the northern headland of Long Bay, close to Maroubra beach. The MV Malabar that was named after a small ship in Java, sank on April 1931 when it came into a heavy fog. The wreck was inaccessible to divers for almost sixty years.

The spot is appropriate for all levels of divers. The average depth here is at 9 m/29.5 ft and the maximum depth is at 10 m/32.8 ft. Visibility rate is medium at around 5 m/16.4 ft long or more and it can be dived all year long. Water temperature is up to 21°C/69.8°F in summer and early autumn months and between 14-18°C/57.2-64.4°F in winter.

To dive the site from the shore, drive to end of Fishermans road and park in the parking area above the boat ramp, walk along the rock platform right out to the point and then around to the east.

Expect to see the whole engine where you can swim around it, a large propeller, mast supports, bollards and other pieces of wreck throughout the area. Apart from the wreck, divers may come across with huge numbers of bream, yellow-tail and other fish.
