Adelaide, the liveliest city in Australia, is the capital of South Australia state. The city is situated on the Adelaide Plains and more specifically at the north side of Fleurieu Peninsula. The city is built next to Torrens River and is surrounded by the Mount Lofty Ranges and the Gulf St Vincent.

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 Stanvac Wreck actually represent three barges (two small and a larger one) that were purposely sunk in 1954, creating artificial reefs rich in marine life. The barges lie at 5 km/3 mi in the west of Port Stavnac. The site is addressed to advanced scuba divers. The barges cannot be penetrated, but the schools of mackerel, moonlighters and nudibranchs will definitely reward you. Access is by boat from O’Sullivan Beach boat ramp.

Maximum depth: 32 m/104 ft.
