In 1949 the collier Bombo carrying 650 tones of Blue Metal disappeared off the coast of Wollongong. The Captain ordered her return to Kembla harbour as the blue metal was shifting in her number-one hold. A combination of this and rough seas caused her to capsize without a trace for more then 30 years. Unfortunately, there were only two survivors.
The Bombo now lays upside down and broken in half at a depth of 30 metres just outside Wollongong harbour. She is a perfect artificial reef, home to thousands of fish with several swimthroughs of interest. Certification required- Advanced (Advanced Deep is frequently offer on this dive)
