Located in front of the town of Bargara, near Bundaberg, Burkitts Reef is a popular shore diving site that always provides a few surprises.

The reef fringes the headland and varies in depth from two to eight metres and is covered in lovely hard corals.

Nudibranchs are a feature of this reef, and divers will see hundreds of them, but also common are moray eels, wobbegongs, stingrays, crayfish and olive sea snakes.

Typical reef fish include angelfish, butterflyfish, scorpionfish, wrasse and lionfish, but Burkitts Reef is also visited by pelagic fish so don’t be surprised to see trevally, barracuda and even queenfish.
