The cutter Hannah Thompson had a varied career as a coastal trader, and was the first vessel to trade between Melbourne and Port Campbell. It was later used as a fishing vessel, and during this time it was blown ashore and wrecked in Oberon Bay on Wilsons Promontory.

The Hannah Thompson shipwreck lies in 5 to 8 metres of water 200 metres south of Oberon Point. The site is not suitable for diving when the wind blows from the northwest, west or southwest.

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.
