The Troy D

Maria Island

Troy D Wreck is a dive site on the southeast side of Tasmania, located inside the Maria Island National Park. It is an interesting artificial reef created by sinking an old 55m/180ft-long container ship in 2007.

When to go 

The most favorable conditions for diving at the Troy D Wreck are from December to February.

What to see

Some lucky divers may see a seal colony close to the Troy D wreck. Species often seen here include reef sharks, moray eels, grouper, barracudas, and snapper. The ship is covered in hard corals that serve as home to small tropical fish.

The SS Nord

She was a cargo ship of 88m carrying case oil when she sank on November 8th, 1915, after striking a sunken pinnacle. All her crew survived. She now lies in 42m depth and is one of Tasmania’s few “intact” shipwrecks. Although the superstructure has collapsed, she still resembles a ship, the bow and stern are still reasonably intact and the rudder still moves! The wreck has attracted a variety of fish and is covered in colorful encrusting marine life.
