EX HMAS Brisbane Come with us and explore the 133 metre, former warship through large access holes that allow passage into the forward engine room, boiler room, & the ship’s interior including sleeping quarters used by the crew during the ship’s service from 1967 to 2001. Coupled with this, you will also have the chance to explore the growth of the artificial reef, with substantial marine life already colonising the wreck. The ship is completely covered with plants and permenantly attached sessile invertebrates, attracting mobile invertebrates and fish species and forming a highly complex food chain. The coral colonies provide the framework around and within the wreck, where all sorts of reef animals, such as fish, sponges, worms, starfish and molluscs live. There is prolific growth of embryonic corals over most of the structure and subtropical fish are abundant. Reef inhabitants already regularly seen on the wreck include many types of anemones, sponges, worms, algae, arthropods such as shrimps, crabs and lobsters, invertebrates such as hard and soft corals, sea stars, feather stars, sea urchins and colourful nudibranchs, as well as a large diversity of fish. Sub-tropical fish are abundant. Commonly seen are schools of whiting, happy moments, varied pelagic fish, yellowtail kingfish and cuttlefish happily cruising the decks. Schools of baitfish in their thousands around the wreck have been attracting a diverse range of larger species. The wreck is also a hunting ground for free-ranging pelagic species such as mackerel, tuna and jacks. Coral growth and marine life is amazing on the sunken ship and definitely should not be missed.
