Just 25 metres from the shore, the trail features a purpose-built reef that supports a diverse range of aquatic flora, corals and healthy schools of fish and sea life.  

The 200 metre snorkel and dive trail supports a protected marine habitat for research, educational opportunities for schools, recreational dive clubs and university marine science faculties.

Just 25 metres from the shore, the trail features a purpose-built reef that supports a diverse range of aquatic flora, corals and healthy schools of fish and sea life.  

Snorkelers and divers will also find underwater art sculptures and informational plaques about the Omeo shipwreck, maritime history and aquatic life in the area.

By simply playing, you've helped give a $78,000 grant towards the construction of the reef to create a snorkel and dive trail, as well as a land-based trail featuring historical artefacts and interpretive signage. 

In this state, Western Australians get to play games geared to helping their dreams, and those of WA, come to life.

In the 2017-18 financial year alone, $260 million was given back to WA’s communities, thanks to you playing. You live in a dream state, and it’s all yours for the taking.
