The Centurion is the wreck of a barque in the Sydney Harbour that makes an interesting and easy dive for divers of all levels. Sitting in just 18 m of water, the Centurion lies just off Quarantine Point on Sydney's North Head. The Centurion was wrecked on 16 January 1887, not long after having set sail for Hawaii, loaded up with a cargo of coal.
The site consists mostly of scattered wreckage on a rocky / sandy bottom. There are some notable features and you can take your time looking about, especially given the relatively shallow depths of the wreck. The site has a large plaque marking it as a site of historical significance (the wreck is 130 years old), with guidelines on responsible diving and anchoring. Fish life can be quite good, and there are usually one or two big wobbegong sharks on this site.
The Royal Shepherd is located just outside Sydney Harbour off South Heads. There is not much left of it - basically you will see the boiler, engine, drive shaft and propeller, all easily seen in one dive. In its day it was 42 m long and 6 m wide, but sunk on the evening of the 14th of July 1890. it now lies in 27 m of water. Due to the depth an Advanced certification required to dive this site.
