These are Tangalooma Wrecks on Moreton Island, a cluster of retired sand-mining vessels sunk just of f the shore from 1963 by the Queensland government. The ships were sunk to create a safe harbour for recreational boats, but inadvertently they created a man-made reef, and one of the best places to snorkel in Australia. Take a mask and flippers, or hire on the island, and spend a couple of hours exploring all the sea life under water - fish, turtle, reef sharks.

The wrecks have been submerged in salt water for many years and very rusty. Be careful when swimming around them, try not to damage the boats, or yourself.
