Gold Coast pushes ahead on world first dive site

Mayor Tom Tate is expected to call for tenders for a new dive attraction for the Gold Coast today.

The dive site would sit off Narrowneck, approximately 3.5 kilometres southeast of the Seaway, and 2.5 kilometres off Main Beach.

If it comes to fruition, the pyramid shaped dive-site will be a world-first.


It’s believed the project could cost anywhere between $3 million and $5 million, but that it will more than pay for itself when it draws divers from all over the world.

Mayor Tom Tate is expected to today call on proponents to send in their ideas for the design and construction of the ambitious project.

The giant pyramid structure is believed to be an alternative to a sunken warship off the Gold Coast.

Council is also reportedly in talks with the Tourism Minister Kate Jones for the State Government to go halves with Council in the project.

If Council progresses to construction phase, which Mayor Tate is confident about, the project could support around 80 jobs once it’s operating.
