Time 1 Hours - Scuba Diving

Discover the spring-fed limestone ponds at the Ewens Ponds Conservation Park by snorkelling along the shallow channels or scuba diving into the ponds.

The channels connect three basin-shaped ponds which are approximately 10 metres deep. The clarity of the water enables plants to grow underwater to a depth of about six metres. Some of these plants are not found growing fully submerged underwater anywhere else in the world.

Snorkelling along the shallow channels or scuba diving in the spring-fed limestone ponds of Ewens Ponds Conservation Park are fantastic experiences for qualified divers. The depth and clarity of these ponds create a rare environment for plants and fish.
