Scuttling Day 13th April 2011
A large crowd gathered to watch the scuttling of the ex HMAS Adelaide II as she started a new life as an artificial reef and dive wreck.
The time was delayed by dolpins feeding on fish, after the area was declared safe a flare was fired up into the air one minute before the sinking at 11:48am.
The ex HMAS Adelaide just before 11:50am when she waved her final farewell and took up a new life as a dive wreck and artificial reef.
Clearence divers reported signs of life are already gathering there.
