Currajong Wreck is a 68 metre long ship wreck in 24 metres of water which needs to be dived at 1:00 am in the morning. Must be AOW with 5 night dives and min 20 dives
Departs 1.00am Sunday Morning Rose Bay.
On the evening of 8 March 1910, the TSS Currajong entered Port Jackson and headed up the Harbour. As the Currajong neared Bradleys Head, the huge 6000 plus tons passenger liner, SS Wyreema, bound for Cairns approached from the west. As was later to be shown at the Marine Inquiry, the Wyreema was traveling on the wrong side of the channel and hit the Currajong amidships on the port side. The Currajong started sinking immediately and the helmsman, Hans Neilson, was killed.
Since the dive site is in the harbour's main shipping channels it must be undertaken after Harbour officially closes down for the day.

Comments: good dive,all the best for the planning on this dive. the visibility was 2-3 meters,but not much of a wreck left to be seen.various marine live down there, and a good practice on nite diving.make shure you got all the gear needed for nite dive on this one.i give boat crew 5+ for putting the anchor right on the wreck-which made dive a lot more easy.
