Scuba Diving in Glenelg Barge Wreck, Adelaide, South Australia Australia

Max depth:
18 m/59 ft
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.

Glenelg Barge is 30 m/98 ft long and was purposely sunk in 1984, creating an artificial reef close to the shore and a popular diving site amongst scuba divers of all levels. You can enter the working rooms at both ends of the barge and peer inside the flotation rooms (penetration is not advised, unless you are an advanced diver and have the appropriate safety equipment).

Maximum depth: 18 m/59 ft.
