Melbourne, Victoria, Australia has a rich maritime history. This has resulted in more than 800 ships coming to grief in Victoria waters with only about 30% of them having been found. Plus, there is an extensive Victorian Ships' Graveyard of scuttled shipwrecks south of Melbourne in Bass Strait, not far from the entrance to Port Phillip and the Port of Melbourne.

Because there are so many of them, we've divided the shipwreck dives into the following sections, each with their own web page:

For even more shipwreck dives in Victoria, see Victoria Wreck Dives, and Victorian Shipwreck Protected Zones.

With so many shipwrecks that haven't been found in Victorian waters, it's only natural that divers would go looking for them. One of the most organised and successful groups is Southern Ocean Exploration.

Southern Ocean Exploration (SOE) is a non-profit group of explorers, educators and sub-professional maritime archaeologists who locate and record what lies undiscovered in the expansive coastal waters of Southern and South Eastern Australia.
