Details: Point Turton was a bit of an unknown but sounded like a cool little dive from all accounts. Its a small jetty, and well protected by the surrounding headlands, and some reef along the point promised some alternate habitat if the pier wasn’t any good. Conditions were great, and as soon as we got in, we were greeted by big schools of Black Drummer. This was soon followed by a massive school of Australian Salmon, that formed swirling schools around the pylons. Remaining still, the school would approach close and circle around us. A very impressive sight. There were a couple of nudibranchs around and it seemed like it would be a great spot for a night dive. NO rays as promised from some we reports but the schooling fish was worth the visit.
