Scuba Diving in Star of Greece Wreck, Port Willunga, 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. One of the most popular destination for scuba divers of all levels is the Star of Greece wreck, mostly because it lies only at 200 m/656 ft from the shore of Port Willunga.
It was a 1227 ton tree-masted iron ship that sunk in 1888, as a result of a violent storm. The exact diving site is marked with a buoy. On low tides, the wreck is at a depth of only 3 m/9 ft, whereas at times parts of the ship can be exposed and be seen from the shore.
Maximum depth: 6 m/19 ft.
