"Osprey Reef: Admiralty Anchor" State of Queensland Things to Do Tip by Quero

State of Queensland Things to Do: 315 reviews and 681 photos


This site is named for the anchor that somehow became embedded in the reef. The only way to see it is to traverse the swim-through and look back.

I've included a photo of the anchor here.

But this isn't the only attraction of this site. This makes a wonderful night dive, too, since there swim through (and other niches along the wall) is home to a fascinating little fish with glowing eyes! Yes, the fish has phosphorescent patches over it's eyes, and, incredibly, it can flash them!!! Not so incredibly, the fish is called a "flashlight fish"
