Cherubs Cave

A small concrete cherub once marked the main entrance to this hidden cave off Moreton Island. While the guardian has since disappeared, this underwater world remains to be discovered by the adventurous diver.

Pelagic life, including barracuda, kingfish and trevally, patrol the area, and divers will also encounter turtles, gropers and wobbegong sharks. Grey nurse sharks gather in the gutters
