Level: Advanced Open Water and beyond.

Rabbit Island, North is a boat dive site for adventurous divers on the southern side of Rabbit Island, a small, granite island 1.6 km off the north-eastern coast of Wilsons Promontory, Victoria, Australia. The island lies within the Wilsons Promontory Marine Park, and the Rabbit Island North dive site faces north out into the often wild seas of Bass Strait. The island was named in 1842 by Captain John Lort Stokes after the numerous rabbits, descendants of those left by sealers to provide a food supply for sailors.

Diving Rabbit Island, North

On the northern side of Rabbit Island you'll find easy diving with a good mix of habitat types which means different species to see and photograph. The bottom is mostly sandy, but there are also areas of fringing near shore reef and seagrass beds. There is also a surprisingly rich number of school fish including Sweep and Zebrafish.

See also the nearby Rabbiit Island, South dive site.

Ideal Conditions: Rabbit Island, North is best dived with calm seas, no swell and no wind. Light offshore south-westerly to south-easterly winds may be acceptable. Because of the sometimes strong currents, Rabbit Island, North is best dived at slack water. See WillyWeather (Rabbit Island) as a guide for the tide times and the height of the tide.

Bass Strait Warning: Always keep an eye on sea conditions throughout any shore or boat dive in Bass Strait on Victoria's coastline. Please read the warnings on the web page diving-in-bass-strait before diving or snorkelling this site.

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.
