The shipwreck of the Craigburn is archaeologically significant for its remains of a typical 19th-century iron sailing barque. As a dive site set amongst typically spectacular Mornington Peninsula underwater topography and marine life, it also has recreational and educational significance.
The wreck is very scattered in an area remote to boat access. Weather conditions have to be really good and the sea must be calm to dive here. You will need a good lookout for freak swell and sudden weather changes. There are also large bommies near the Craigburn wreck that are a hazard to navigation.
