These are the Tangalooma Wrecks. A popular place for scuba diving.

The ships were sunk to create an artificial reef.

Here you can see the names of the sunken ships:

OK thanks....we went to the resort at Tangalooma a couple of years ago, and hand fed the wild dolphins that come up the beach every night.....an amazing experience....
