Diver's Notes

Moving from Byron Bay and the Gold Coast,we were now on the Sunshine Coast and decided to dive the ex-HMAS Brisbane wreck.Having descended using the line because of quite strong current, it became immediately obvious that the water was cold.I had no hood as it got stolen in Byron Bay which didn't help.The first dive as normal was to circumnavigate the ship which was huge.I also dropped down from the deck level to swim through the bottom of the boat next to the rudder which was pretty cool.not a great deal of marine life but seeing the wreck was awesome.Huge and in good tact.
