Diving and snorkelling - Port Campbell, Peterborough and Warrnambool

Best known in diving circles for its multitude of shipwrecks, most of which are reached by boat dives, this area also has some great snorkelling and shore dives. Recommended spots include the Port Campbell jetty, Wild Dog Cove at Peterborough, and the breakwater wall at Warrnambool – particularly the outside wall. An area called The Gardens off Middle Island has superb kelp forests and swim-throughs. Stingray Bay, in the Merri Marine Sanctuary, is particularly good for snorkelling and is known for abundant fish and other creatures including crayfish, anemones and starfish. As well as the shipwrecks, deeper adventures can include the dramatic natural formations, because the awesome scenery of the Twelve Apostles Marine National Park does not stop at the waterline – under water there are dramatic arches, canyons and other formations. The Dive Inn at Warrnambool will fix you up with gear and give you the ‘okay’ signal.
