Located only 25 metres from the shore, the dive and snorkel trail begin at the Omeo shipwreck and includes:

  • Underwater access to the Omeo shipwreck
  • Underwater art gallery
  • Artificial reef.

The underwater trail begins in shallow water while its westernmost extent reaches a maximum depth of 7 metres. Most of the trail is around 2.5 to 5 metres deep, making it suitable for snorkelers and novice divers. 
The artificial reef and underwater art sculptures around the shipwreck create a linear dive trail and habitat for aquatic life. Underwater educational plaques give information about the Omeo shipwreck, maritime history and aquatic life in the area.

Description

Since it wrecked in 1917, the remains constantly change in appearance. Winter storms and swell can see up to 12m of the wreck exposed, but even in the height of summer, timbers can still be seen above the water mark. Timbers from the wreck were salvaged by local Yanchep residents, and can still be found in structures such as the Yanchep Inn.
