Hi name is Mark. I'm interested in a houseboat wreck off Peel Island - Brisbane, Queensland.... Anyone heard or seen it?

Hi Mark,

I made a similar post about 6 months ago and no-one on Diveoz could help me. I got on Ausfish and plenty of the fishos were keen to help. The mark I got is 27 30.348'S 153 19.303'E.
Apparantly the wreck is about 20 metres south from the Green Beacon otherwise known as spit beacon. Apparantly it comes up well on the sounder. The fishos reckon the wreck is full of bull sharks, but they of course wouldn't really know as they stay in the boat. As we know fisho always talk up the sharks at a site.
The fishos reckon the wreck is very much in tact and to be careful as they claim it is covered by a trawler net that hooked up. If you go looking for it on the weekend there should be plenty of fishing boats around it.
The day I went out to do it the water around there was brown soup so I gave it a miss and had a splash at the shallow old wreck off the point, the "wallace ", I think. The vis was slightly better there.
My limited experience diving around Peel Is has given me the opinion that it is not worth the effort.
Let me know how you go though I would be interested to know what you find.
Talk soon,

Mark Peatfield
