Event information

Registrations for this event are closed.

We plan to dive at Nurse Rock, a new site for Unidive, which is located near Mooloolaba. This site is known as an excellent place to see Grey Nurse Sharks in the winter months. Divers may also encounter large schools of surgeon fish, turtles, rays, cuttlefish, eels, and tropical reef fish. The depth of the site ranges from 14m to 22m and there are number of boulders and swim-throughs at the bottom to explore.

As this is a new site to Unidive, this trip is for EXP divers only.

  • Be a current Unidive member, medically fit to dive, who passed the swim test.
