These are the shipwrecks of Tangalooma. This is located on Moreton Island which happens to be a former whaling station. It is a very large sand island on the south-east coast of Queensland, Australia. In actual fact it forms the largest sand structure in the world.

But, what exactly caused 15 vessels all to run a ground here?

Well, they were in fact deliberately sunk right near the shoreline to form a breakwall for the small fishing boats and tourists boats that want to get inland.

The other thing these sunken vessels create is a fantastic snorkeling and diving attraction for many enthusiasts. The marine life around the area has increased in numbers too with the wrecks attracting many species such as Kingfish, Yellowtail, Wobbegongs and vast amount of tropical fish.

Check out these superb pictures of the wrecks and share them along to your friends….
