Melbourne Reef Dives

Melbourne Reef Dives

When most people mention reefs, they usually mean coral reefs, without realising that reefs can be extensive in temperate (cooler) waters. There are fundamental differences in the structure and dynamics of tropical and temperate reefs.

Temperate water reefs consist of a rocky substrate, which is colonised by a range of algae, attached invertebrates, and kelp forests — highly productive, structurally complex communities of large brown seaweeds. Coral reefs are built up by small animals that secrete a calcium carbonate skeleton (corals). Temperate waters are cooler and nutrient levels tend to be higher compared to reefs in tropical waters.

Australia's Unique Great Southern Reef

Many of the reef dives in Bass Strait near Melbourne are actually dives on the Great Southern Reef. Yes, that's Australia's less well known reef even though its kelp forests contain more unique and diverse marine life by global standards, and it covers 71,000 square km.

The Unique Flora and Fauna of Victoria's Marine Environment

Consider these facts: 85% of the temperate fish species, 95% of the species of molluscs, and 90% of the species of sea stars or sea urchins (echinoderms) are unique to temperate Australia. Huge ranges of sea squirts (ascidians) are also found, with 189 species recorded. Many of these species are Great Southern Reef dwellers at some stage of their life cycle.

As a comparison in the tropics, where many species tend to disperse more widely, only 13% of fish species, 10% of molluscs and 13% of echinoderms are unique to the region.

In Southern waters 1,100 species of red algae described so far represent 25% of the world's total, with 75% of them being unique to our region.

Victoria's Artificial Reefs

Many ships have come to grief in Victoria waters, plus there is an extensive Ships' Graveyard in Bass Strait, not far from the entrance to Port Phillip and the Port of Melbourne. These wrecks have all become exciting artificial reefs and home to thousands of marine creatures. More about: Melbourne Wreck Dives - Shipwrecks of warships, submarines, sailing clippers and more...

Melbourne Reef Dive Locations

The following Melbourne Reef Dives are a good mixture of shore and boat access diving. Some of the shore access reef dive sites can also be accessed by boat, but the reverse is seldom true.

You can see where the popular Melbourne and Victorian reef dive locations are via our Melbourne Dive Sites Map. The GPS marks for these reef dives are also listed here, plus on our Melbourne Dive Site GPS Marks page.

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.

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.
