Details:
The Ceratodus II was
50m long, 350 tonne gravel dredge Ceratodus II which was generously donated by Smiths Premix.  The preparation of Ceratodus II took months of working bees with many excited association members working to full capacity.  The dredge was towed down the Burnett River, out to the site and was deployed using explosives.  It rests in approximately 15 metres of water, lying almost upside down, and for many years was considered the "main attraction" on the reef, although numerous other large items have since been placed on the bottom to keep her company.
