- ABOUT THE SPOT
Scuba Diving in Port Noarlunga Northern 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 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.
Port Noarlunga Northern Reef, a popular site among divers of all levels, is a pretty easy dive with good visibility and prolific fish life at relatively shallow depths. During your dive, you will pass some small overhangs, timber beams (part of the old jetty) and an unused mooring chain. Be prepared to see leather jackets, whitings, cuttlefish, old wives, strongies, silver drummers, zebras and bullseyes.
Maximum depth: 8 m/26 ft.
