After 34 years of service, the ex-HMAS Tobruk was brought to Bundaberg to prepare for her scuttling to her final resting place in the Wide Bay waters off the coast of Bundaberg. The ex-HMAS Tobruk has been sunk and is now a dive site for experienced divers visiting the Southern Great Barrier Reef. While the Tobruk can be compared in length to many destroyers, it is almost two times the width of other destroyers in her class and given the roll-on roll-off characteristics of the vessel it lends itself to being an ideal dive opportunity by providing a huge cavernous space to explore. Ex-naval vessels are quickly inhabited with diverse marine life, offer a fascinating diving experiences, and are popular amongst the experienced diving community.
