Nine Mile Reef

The top of the reef sits at about 10 meters deep, dropping to 30 meters with the drop-off covered in numerous hard and soft corals. Reef fish are scattered across the shallower parts, with pelagic fish, sharks, turtles, stingrays, eagle rays, and the occasional manta ray circling the reef.

All year long, a good population of wobbegongs call the reef home but are joined by leopard sharks in summer and grey nurse sharks in winter.
