The dive site Grain Terminal, Kwinana, consists of the mussel beds to the North East and South West fo the Jetty (These are clearly marked by floating buoys) and the pylons on which the grain conveyor is built. The Jetty is approximately 650m long from the high water mark to the loading dock. The ground is gentle sloping sandy bottom.
This is a macro site for lovers of nudibranches but can be visited by large schools of snapper, the occasional sea lion and even penguins! If you are lucky you may even see a shark predating on snapper. Octopus, sea horses, schools of herring and lots of colorful growth on the Pylons, sponges, soft coral and sea slugs, tube worms etc. Take a torch! Make sure you don’t leave any valuables in your car. The Southern Car Park is more exposed whilst the Northern car park is quite secluded. The mussel beds are a navigation hazard so there is not much boat traffic but they do attract anglers in small boats so use a dive flag. Do not dive on the end or within 100m of the end due to possible movement of bulk carriers.
