Around and under these boulders is a sizeable collections of sedentary fish life. You can expect to see cuttlefish, moray eels, hawkfish, shrimp, nudibranchs, rays, and wobbegongs.

Long Reef

Depth:25m Rating:Blue

Located North of Sydney Harbour. The main site at Long Reef is located along a large rock wall and drops to 15 to 20 metres. There is a huge rock formation that has a large swim-through running from east to west called The Cathedral. The cathedral one of the sites highlights is formed by two massive boulders leaning against each other and is covered in sea tulips, sponges and bryozoans. The Cathedrals ceiling is always abundant with sealife. Once you reach the western side it is home to masses of fish; bullseyes, roughies, yellowtail, pike and tailor. There are plenty of starfish, large cuttlefish, wobbegongs and Port Jackson sharks. We find visibility gets much clearer during winter so keep this site in mind for a mid winter dive. Swimming north of the cathedral and following the wall you come across large gutters, frequented by young grey nurse sharks. Note - Watch for strong currents.

Wedding Cake Is.

Depth:24m Rating:Green

About 1 km off of Coogee Beach is a collection of rocks about 150 metres long and 50 metres wide. At high tide one can see these rocks poking out of the sea and as the tide goes down they get more pronounced. This is Wedding Cake Island.

As you descend you will see the reef drop off in shelves at 5m, 8m, 15m, 18m, and the rock sand line is at approximately 22m. The main wall is at the 15m mark and this is where heaps of sea squirts and several small gorgonians make their home. Along the wall you can also find overhangs and caves that provide shelter to the aquatic life.

Wobbegongs can be found here along with lots of other fishlife including yellow-banded seaperch, old wife, snapper, bream, the esteemed blue groper, combfish, six-spined leatherjacket, rainbow runners, kingfish, and schools of luderick that flock to the shallower waters.
