Scuba Diving Trips

AUSC conducts annual weekend trips away to Coobowie, Yorke Peninsula; Whyalla; and the South East, whilst intermittently heading to Eyre Peninsula and Kangaroo Island.

Coobowie, Yorke Peninsula

Coobowie in Yorke Peninsula is a reasonably central location to many of the diving sites that are around Yorke Peninsula.

The Coobowie Research station in situated about one minute out of Coobowie. The research station resembles a large shack, with kitchen, lounge (couches and a fire), shower facilities and a lab area. The station has a large sleeping hall containing 12 bunk beds, a large common room with couches and a dining table, kitchen, outdoor bathroom and laboratory.

Whyalla, Eyre Peninsula

Every year between the months of May and September, thousands of Giant Australian Cuttlefish (Sepia apama) descend on the rocky coastline between Fitzgerald Bay and False Bay. These amazing ‘chameleons of the sea’ are one of the largest species of cuttlefish found in the world; and can reach up to 60 cm in length and can weigh up to 5 kg.

The Club tends to stay at the Point Lowly Lighthouse cottages, and subject to availability, try to stay during the June long weekend.
