The wreck(age) of the Malabar is a great shallow dive when the conditions are good.  Seas must be fairly calm as the best part, the engine, is quite close to shore and subject to strong surge. 

The engine is huge and you can swim through it.  You can also find the rudder and a propeller (possibly not from the Malabar), and  a large flywheel that nearly breaks the surface.  There are large steel pipes that could have been drive shafts and lots of other stuff.  Being shallow, this dive is for all divers.  It is a long swim from shore but easily done from a boat.

The GPS of the  Engine 33 58.157' S, 151 15.822' E and the Flywheel 33 58.148' S 151 15.793' E.

There are lots of schooling fish including stripeys around the engine, yellowtail, old wives to mention a few.
