Devil's Drop Off (aka Devil's Dropoff) is one of the most popular dive sites on Lonsdale Wall, this site begins with a huge drop-off from 12 to 30 metres and continues with a series of ledges, overhangs and swim throughs and then gently slopes to 55 metres plus.

This is also the habitat of the Southern Blue Devil fish which can be spotted all along the wall here. Their placid nature and vibrant blue colour also makes them great for photography. You will also come across many other species of marine life here as the site lies in the Marine Park.

At 27 metres there is a long overhang to follow covered in a large variety of soft corals and small fans. A spectacular dive site with something for everyone.

DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Should anyone decide to use these GPS marks to locate and dive on a site, they do so entirely at their own risk. Always verify against other sources.

The marks come from numerous sources including commercial operators, independent dive clubs, reference works, and active divers. Some are known to be accurate, while others may not be. Some GPS marks may even have come from maps using the AGD66 datum, and thus may need be converted to the WGS84 datum. To distinguish between the possible accuracy of the dive site marks, we've tried to give each mark a source of GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
