Description: About 1km from shore, off Cape Conran on the East Coast of Victoria. The reef is visible above the surface, and is directly out to sea from the East Cape.
Beware Reef is a large reef which rises almost vertically from 30m depth to just break the surface. It is about 20m in diameter at the surface, and has a ridge running off one side. It is appropriately named, since 3 ships managed to become wrecked on the reef. The remains of all three can be seen scattered about. The small holes created by some of the wreckage makes perfect homes for small crayfish, plenty of which can be seen on some parts of the reef. Moray eels are also very common. There is plenty of fish life, and some very attractive growths on the sides of the reef. Occasionally seals can also be seen in the water, and they often sit up on the top of the reef sunning themselves. Other creatures of interest include Port Jackson sharks, as well as nudibranchs.
