Coal Loader (Catherine Hill Bay)

The old coal loader is the dominating feature of the bay, a shallow dive that goes to about 11m. Under and about the coal loader you can find a plethora of ship chains, cables and hardware including the remains of the SSWallarah. Being a relatively sandy dive, you will also likely get to see a few rays! The pylons of the old coal loader have spent decades growing their own reef and are now home to lots of fish species and nudibranch.

To the south of the loader is the calmest entry and exit point for the area, a shallow dive with schooling fish and, like the loader, a plethora of ship chains, cables and hardware. Follow a chain and see what you end up with!
