Flat Rock is one of the best places in Australia to dive with Grey Nurse sharks! Importantly, Grey Nurse sharks are gentle predators and mainly feed on fish. They are found in sub-tropical to cool temperatures. Normally, Grey Nurse Sharks visit Flat Rock during the colder months from June to October. In particular, this time of year offers the best visibility and great ocean conditions. Importantly, Grey Nurse sharks are considered endangered. Indeed, only an estimated 500 individuals remain on the Eastern coast of Australia. They travel from Southern NSW to the warmer waters of QLD to mate and gestate.
The most popular spot to dive Flat Rock is called Shark Ally. It is located on the Eastern edge of Flat Rock and can reach some depths of up to 30 metres. As a result, it is common to see humpback whales breaching in close proximity of the boat. In fact, you may even see them underneath your boat if you’re lucky! Is there any better way to kill time during your safety stop? Finally, Flat Rock also boasts other marine wildlife, including eagle rays, turtles, octopus, barracudas and other large and small tropical fish.
