Culture and heritage

The local Aboriginal people use the area surrounding the Point Addis Marine National Park for traditional practices of fishing and food collection. Middens are located along the shoreline and it is believed Point Addis may be a burial area, however there has been no archaeological survey to confirm this.

There are two wrecks in this popular diving area:

  • The Inverlochy - a Scottish built international cargo vessel that wrecked in December 1902 on Ingoldsby Reef and sits in about 4 - 7 metres on the side of the reef.
  • Naiad - a small cutter or yacht that wrecked in 1881.
