Painted Walls – Deadchest Island (weather permitting)

It would seem as though an artist of the impressionist era had plied their skills at Painted Walls!

The walls where two, underwater valleys converge are teaming in colourful sponges as well as soft and hard corals, looking remarkably similar to an artist’s pallet! The main inhabitants at Painted Walls are nurse sharks, barracuda and lobsters.

The Wreck of The RMS Rhone- Salt Island
