Wreck Description: 3 Barges, less than 100 metres apart. 2 small, and one larger, the larger is the one most frequently dived on. No real penetrations, and not really all that much, as wrecks go, they were basically open barges, that were towed. Sunk as artificial reefs, they serve their purpose well. Quite a bit of fish life, including Boar fish, Whiting, Snapper, Wobbegongs, to name a few. Good growth on the barges too.
