Help us sink ex-HMAS Tobruk for Straddie

Support our call for the State Government to select the waters off North Stradbroke Island as Queensland’s site to sink the ex-warship HMAS Tobruk and create a new dive site. Sign our e-petition now and like our Sink Tobruk For Straddie Facebook page.


Get on board and take a scuba selfie and share it on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter to help us #sinktobrukforstraddie !

With sand mining on Straddie to end by 2019, this is the perfect opportunity to grow tourism in the region. The island already has an abundance of marine life and impressive dive sites like the Manta Bommie, which is known as one of Australia’s top 10 dive sites.

Scuttling the ex-HMAS Tobruk and creating a new artificial reef on Straddie’s doorstep would attract more divers and provide flow-on economic opportunities for our region.

Council will submit a formal expression of interest to the State Government by 16 September. Read more here.
