12lb Reef is located on the Lonsdale Wall, inside Port Phillip. It was named after a massive crayfish that was caught there. The story goes that a cray diver caught site of the monster in its cave, and grabbed it. Maybe it's more accurate to say that the cray caught him! By the time he reached the surface, the two were still locked in a mortal struggle!

Nevertheless, there could well be more large crays still lurking here, so if you fancy your skills as a cray hunter it's definitely worth a look. The many overhangs and plentiful soft corals make this a popular and picturesque dive as well.
