A favourite dive site for a lot of Quicksilver’s repeat divers, a stunning wall plunging from 5m to 40m on the outer edge of Agincourt No 4, this is good bye Australia. Unfortunately this site can not be dived all year round due to its exposed location; the best times are during Australian spring and summer (September to March).

There are multiple dive options from drift to the North and South along the wall, deep and static dives, when you swim out from the wall and look back at it you get a sense of the immense size of the reef structure.

As you drift along there are deep gutters into the reef wall, which are home to large numbers of Unicorn and Parrotfish and Pyramid Butterfly fish also medium to large Cod, Coral Trout, Red Bass and lone Maori Wrasse.

You will also see working the currant White and Black Tip Reef Sharks and large Spanish Mackerel. There have been occasional sightings of Hammerhead Sharks.

In the shallower waters there are colourful soft coral gardens and in the deeper waters large fan corals.
