x2 Guided Boat Dive

After running out to sea past the north-west mark, slowly head towards the Bahai Temple until the two marks line up. The depth on your depth sounder will come up from 48 metres to less than 40. Immediately turn to the north and drop anchor while still over the wreck. If the anchor misses the wreck and hits the sand to the north of the wreck, the anchor will not take hold as the hull lies along the north and eastern side and the anchor will just slip past the wreck in a north-easterly sea breeze. The wreck lies in a north-south direction.

Product Description

One of the largest vessels scuttled on the Long Reef Wreck Site is the bucket dredge Coolooli. Built in 1955 at the NSW Government State Dockyard at Newcastle (NSW), the Coolooli was unpowered. She displaced 150 tonnes and was 50 metres long and 10 or 11 metres wide. The dredge was owned by the NSW Maritime Services Board and used to keep NSW ports navigable. I have read that she dug out Darling Harbour, not sure which part this may have been, but as there have been ships using Darling Harbour for over 100 years, may be it was deepening it.
