Explore a historic shipwreck, just 600m off Main Beach on the Gold Coast.
The broken hull of The Scottish Prince lies in 10 metres of water near the Southport Spit providing a fascinating wreck dive on the Gold Coast.
In 1887, “The Scottish Prince”, a 3 steel-masted iron barque 64 metres long, sank as she was sailing from Glasgow, Scotland to Brisbane with a cargo of whiskey, mousetraps, linen and other assorted cargo. Only the hull remains and is covered with soft corals and sponges, and is a haven for crayfish, Shovelnose rays, Leopard and wobbegongs, and other tropical fish. The wreck is protected under the Commonwealth Historic Shipwreck Act.
