Warning Signs are up for the Sinking of the ex-HMAS Adelaide, but is it too late?

Clearway, road closed are all the go in Avoca Beach for the sinking of the ex-HMAS Adelaide as a scuba dive wreck. The local paper, the Central Coast Express Advocate has a headline story about the sinking.

But it appears that it is all too late. Video footage has confirmed that the ex-HMAS Adelaide has already been sunk, 5 days ahead of time.

Well, almost!

It appears that is hasn’t been sunk yet, and there are lots of clearway signs at Kincumber, North Avoca and Avoca Beach just ready for the sinking to make way for the dive wreck.

Roads will be closed early at Avoca Beach, if you want to get a good car parking space, be there before 1:00am.

Looks as though security around the ship will be pretty tight, no access without official authorisation within 1km of the sinking site. I didn’t realise the shark net was so close to the beach and it looks as though it is almost 2.5km long. Have whales ever been caught in this net?
