Annother wreck. They were sunk just off the beach at Moreton Island, to make an artificial reef and protected anchorage for small pleasure craft.

The wrecks were sunk by the government to form a sheltered area for recreational boats.

The ‘Maryborough' a bucket dredge built in 1885 was the first to be placed here in 1963, shortly followed by the ‘Remora', the ‘Bream' and the ‘Dolphin' .All these vessels were former government vessels which had been used by the Harbour Board to dredge and maintain channels, harbours and river depths along the Qld coast; they had all become obsolete and uneconomical to update.

The fishing, snorkling and diving around the wrecks is great.

Do a Google Earth search for "Tangalooma" and you can see them just up the beach.
