Scuba Diving in Stanvac Dump, 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.
The Stanvac Dump is actually a large artificial reef with dumped machinery, cables, equipment and the remains of a truck. The site is addressed to scuba divers of all levels and is rich in marine life (nudibranchs, cuttlefish, wobbegongs, Blue Devils). Access is by boat from O’Sullivan Beach boat ramp.
Maximum depth: 13 m/42 ft.
