With the map above you can navigate your way through the huge variety of great dive sites that Melbourne and Victoria have waiting for you. From shore and pier dives, wrecks, reef and deep wall dives, plus marine park and drift dives, you'll be amazed at just what is on offer.
See Melbourne Dive Site GPS Marks for a list of the dive site GPS marks and basic dive site information.
See Dive Sites for a full list of the dive site web pages.
Lucia Suarez has used the KML file we provide of the Melbourne Dive Sites on this website, together with Google Earth, to produce a set of wall maps. Photos are by Marcia Riederer.
Click on the dive map image thumbnails to see or downloads the full size wall map as a PDF at A0 size, 300 dpi. It should be easy to take the PDFs to a suitable place for printing at A0 or A1 size and laminating.
DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Always check the validity of information with local authorities, especially in regards to restrictions of diving in the area. As information on this dive site database is obtained through multiple sources, the accuracy of the information cannot be guarunteed. 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, e.g. GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
If you don't understand the differences between the different ways coordinates are given, plus how different datum come into play, you might find the article GPS Conversions by Lloyd Borrett a useful read. It describes the problems associated with locating dive sites using a GPS receiver.
In the true spirit of making it easy to obtain, utilise and share the information for non-commercial purposes, you can now Download/view the Scuba Doctor Dive Map GPS Marks (KML file | 427.19 KB | 24-May-2022) in the Keyhole Markup Language (KML) file format used to display geographic data in an Earth browser such as Google Earth or Google Maps.
Some marine GPS units can import the information from a KML file. For others you can use use a file translate program (e.g. GPSBabel) to convert the KML file into an import file format (e.g. GPX) supported by your GPS unit.
