Exmouth Artificial Reef

The Exmouth Artificial Reef is one of seven artificial reefs in Western Australia. Deployed in August 2018 this reef is the largest artificial reef to be deployed within Australian waters.

Since it’s deployment this reef has attracted a large number of fish species. There are also a number of amazing corals and sponges starting to grow on the different structures – in particular around the tall steel structures.
