- ABOUT THE SPOT
Scuba Diving in Northern Outer 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.
Northern Outer Reef, a 100 m/328 ft long reef system with rocky overhangs and ledges, is a popular destination for diving, mainly due to the spectacular and varied fish populations the area hosts.
The site seems to be a breeding ground for Blue Devils, as many young ones can be found around. See the impressive sea sponges, as well as schools of old wives, drummers and cuttlefish. Suitable for advanced divers.
Average viz: 12 m/39 ft. Maximum depth: 22 m/72 ft.
