Middle Reef

Middle Reef is located about 1.5 nautical miles from Adder Rock. This dome shaped rock is often described as an underwater “Ayers Rock”, hiding 9m below the surface in 32m of water.

Middle reef is a site for the more advanced diver, as this rock is quite deep and prone to strong ocean currents.

This rock is home to a variety of tropical fish and soft corals, with a number of Nudibranchs and Moray Eels hiding in the nooks and crannies.

A variety of larger fish and Rays can be seen when looking out into the depths, or looking up towards the surface. Middle Reef is also home to two resident Queensland Groper.
