Directions: Near Jew Shoal. Best visited with a local operator as the Nosa River bar is difficult to cross.
Description: Not exactly the right name for this site because there are no caves. The bottom is a series of gentle hills and gullies that feature four swim throughs. There are also many nooks and crannies to explore.

This is a good place to see eagle rays and the larger bull ray in summer. The crevices contain wobbegong, crayfish and the occasional hunting octopus. Turtles can also be seen.

The outstanding feature of the site is the dizzying variety of nudibranchs on display. Nudi nuts and macro photographers will be hard pressed to see every species on a single dive.
