- ABOUT THE SPOT
Scuba Diving in The Norma 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 some of the most impressive shipwrecks in the whole world here). 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 Norma, close to Port of Adelaide, was a 26 m/85 ft long steel boat that sunk in 1907, as a result of the collision with the steel Ardencraig ship. All that remains today is an impressive mass of steel, masts and other parts of the boat creating an artificial reef on the sandy bottom of the sea. It is perfect for beginner scuba divers.
Maximum depth: 15 m/49 ft.
