Hello and Welcome

Wolf Rock Dive Centre is situated in the picturesque little beachside town of Rainbow Beach, Queensland just a 3-hour drive north of Brisbane and 2 hours’ drive south of Hervey Bay. It is at the top end of the Sunshine Coast just north of Noosa and our nearest neighbor is the world’s largest sand island Fraser Island.

Located just off Double Island Point, Wolf Rock has long been considered one of the best dives in Australia and a must do for your itinerary if you intend travelling up or down the East Coast of Australia. So, what makes Wolf Rock special…

Grey nurse sharks are found here all year round. The numbers vary according to their lifecycle and the largest numbers are always seen from Spring through to Autumn. The winter months we tend to see less numbers of sharks but then you get the bonus of the humpback whale migration. Manta rays can be seen at any time of the year however the months of April, May and June they are more prevalent. In the warmer months we are joined by the leopard sharks and we see eagle rays and giant Queensland groper all year round. Apart from that we see three different species of turtle, schools of pelagic and we also have all the little stuff like nudibranchs, colourful tropical fish, hard and soft corals, octopus, moray eels, sea snakes and so on.

Whether you’re into wide angle or micro there is something here for everyone. If this sounds like your kind of dive, then we hope to see you very soon!
