North Stradbroke Island, Queensland 4183
Amity Point is Brisbane’s most popular shore diving destination, but technically you still need to board a boat at some time to reach it. Located on the northwest tip of North Stradbroke Island, inside Moreton Bay, Amity Point has a rocky reef where numerous car bodies have been dumped. In depths from five to 15 metres divers will see reef fish, moray eels, octopus, nudibranchs, flatheads, parrotfish, globefish, wobbegongs, stingrays and stonefish. Amity Point is best dived on the high tide, being tidal like all the sites in the bay, but can also be done as a drift dive. Popular for diver training, Amity Point is also a great night dive with an interesting array of nocturnal marine life, such as crabs, shrimps, crayfish and parrotfish asleep in the cars.
