fantastic location

Albany has done so much to incorporate the WW1 and Anzac spirit, this is another lovely example of the work, great views as well, plenty to read as well.

We dived the Perth in April 2014 with South Coast Diving Supplies. Gary and Karl were excellent leaders and showed us around the ship. We saw large Samson fish, a 2 metre wobbegong shark, many juvenile pink snapper, clouds of yellowtale, a large school of salmon, blue devils and many other fish. The ship is well encrusted with corals and... More

This ship is pretty massive so you need a few dives to explore the whole thing. I have been down twice and still have not explored all of it. They have done a awesome job at opening it all up with extra ways to get in and out of the ship! If you want to explore inside the ship make... More

The boat is very well preserved and you can access much part of it, even the bridge's captain where you can sit in his former chair. You see also a lot of marine wildlife in the boat, coral, fishes... even a wobbegong shark hidden in... More

The ship is on the bottom of the ocean just out from the war memorial (photo shown) abd makes magnificent views. I am told diving on the wreck is quite an experience.

Well what can one say. I have dive throughout the Asia Pacific region dining the ww1 & ww2 wrecks and this has to have been my best ever wreck dive. We dived with Albany Scuba Diving Academy who were the driving force behind the sinking of the Perth and I must say that they are a truly professional operator. The... More
