Star of Greece Wreck - Over 125 years ago the Star of Greece wrecked off Port Willunga. This shallow wreck can be accessed from the shore and is home to a range of macro life. At low tide, the water is only about 4 metres deep and you can see a small part of one of the masts sticking out of the water from the shore. As it is quite shallow, it is necessary to pick a good day as wind, rain and swells can easily stir the bottom affecting visibility.
The Norma - The Norma is a massive four masted ship, sunk unintentionally in 1907. The next day, another ship ran over the ship, sinking on top of it.

There is also an abundance of marine life to see including big schools of fish and cuttlefish.
