Gold Coast’s world-class Wonder Reef to open next month

Bookings are now open for the Gold Coast’s world-class dive site which is set to open next month.

Two local operators have been chosen to run tours to Wonder Reef, 2.5km off the Spit.

Wonder Reef will open on June 8 to coincide with World Ocean Day.


The dive site has been installed at a depth of 30 metres and features nine world-first buoyant sculptural reef flutes.

“This one-of-a-kind diving attraction will attract divers from around the world,” Mayor Tom Tate said.

“It’s going to put the Gold Coast on the map for top diving experiences and I’m pleased to see two local businesses joining us on the journey.”

Wonder Reef is tipped to top the bucket lists of divers around the world and is part of our commitment to helping Gold Coast tourism build back better,” Tourism Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said.

“This is another great addition to the world-class visitor experiences that make the Gold Coast the world’s favourite Australian holiday playground destination.”

Gold Coast Dive Adventures based at Runaway Bay and Queensland Scuba Diving based at Mariners Cove have been selected to run tours.
