DESCRIPTION

Join us for a two dive day trip to China Wall and Cherubs Cave. We will supply two great dives and a light lunch for the all up price of $160.

China Wall

Located on the exposed eastern side of Brisbane’s Moreton Island, China Wall is an unusual dive site for the area as the reef is dominated by kelp rather than coral. Waving beds of brown kelp are more common in southern Australia and these ones look very out of place with tropical fish swimming around them.

However, China Wall also has many pretty soft corals, gorgonians and black coral trees decorating its rocky terrain. In depths from 16 metres to 32 metres this site has numerous caves, gutters, walls and a very pretty rock arch. In and around the kelp beds expect to see abundant reef fish, bullseyes, yellowtail, trevally, kingfish, blue gropers, wobbegongs and turtles. Winter is the best time to dive China Wall as the conditions are general calm and grey nurse sharks are often seen patrolling the gutters.

During winter, divers are also likely to be serenaded by humpback whales for the entire time underwater, and if lucky may catch a glimpse of one of these giant mammals.

Cherub’s Cave

A small concrete cherub once marked the main entrance to this hidden cave off Moreton Island. While the guardian has since disappeared, this underwater world remains to be discovered by the adventurous diver. Cherub’s Cave is a large, circular cave, roughly 20 by 15 metres, with six exits providing a ‘choose-your-own-adventure’ style dive. The entire area is surrounded by rocky gullies, smaller caves and overhangs to explore. Pelagic life, including barracuda, kingfish and trevally, patrol the area, and divers will also encounter turtles, gropers and wobbegong sharks. Grey nurse sharks gather in the gutters at Cherub’s Cave over winter, and make for very interesting dive companions.
