Hanging Rock

Hanging Rock was given its name due to an enormous rocky outcrop which overhangs a sandy trench below. The underside of the overhang is a photographers delight! Here you will find beautiful sun corals feeding in the tranquil sway of the ocean.

Watch where you poke your nose; small moray eels spy on you through the treasure trove of crevasses.Your eyes will be a buzz keeping track of the tropical fish that call this site home.
