Scuba Diving in Sutherland Point, Kurnell, New South Wales Australia

Maximum Depth:
Kurnell is a suburb in southern Sydney, at about 22 km/14 mi in the south of Sydney's CBD (Central Business District). Kurnell is on the southern headland of Botany Bay, just opposite the suburb of La Perouse. Kurnell boasts some of Sydney’s top dive sites.

Sutherland Point is located in between Monument and Steps. The spot is quite shallow until you reach the sandy terrain, with large sections of kelp and boulders. Heading north from the entry, the path will bring you to the shark cave.

Divers are able to witness an amazing marine life with lots of weedy sea dragons amongst the kelp, giant cuttlefish, octopus, moray eel, blue groper, eagle rays, Port Jackson shark, nudibranch, yellowtail and cat fish to name just a few.

The maximum depth here is at 12 m/39.4 ft. Due to its location, visibility can be a little worse here than the other dive spots around Kurnell. Water temperature is up to 21°C/69.8°F in summer and early autumn months and between 14-18°C/57.2-64.4°F in winter.

The site is suitable for more experienced divers. As it is located in the Kurnell National Park, you are required to pay an entry fee to the park.

Bear in mind that currents can be strong on the south side of Botany Bay. Last but not least, avoid the channeled bedrock, at the east of the exit.
