Gold Coast Artificial Dive Attraction
A new artificial dive attraction will pitch the Gold Coast as an innovative nature-based dive destination.
We have partnered with the Gold Coast City Council to create a site that will be perfect for dive enthusiasts.
Located 2.5 kilometres offshore, the purpose-built reef will create eco-experiences for divers and accessible most of the year. The new attraction will bring a variety of marine life to the area and stand 16 to 20 metres above the ocean floor.
The concept design is going through consultation and is the work of a Queensland artist.
The reef will have a low environmental impact thanks to its location on a sandy seabed and low-lying outcrops in a 500-metre exclusion zone.
