Southern Small Detached Reef Dive Site
Southern Small Detached Reef, 80 kilometres North of Lockhart River in Far North Queensland, is a remote but stunning reef. Sitting so far off the coast, the walls of the reef drop to over 100 metres, with the deep waters inviting lots of larger marine life such as turtles, reef sharks, eagle rays, pelagic fish and occasional manta rays.
The reef walls are decorated with a spectacular array of corals, large gorgonians, long sea whips, spike soft coral trees and sponges, which provide shelter for hosts of multi-coloured reef fish. The outstanding amount of marine life and the enormity of the reef walls make for breathtaking photos, so don’t forget your camera!
