Objective: Let's sink a Melbourne Tram as a destination for snorkellers, freedivers and scuba divers in Port Phillip. You shouldn't have to travel to Queensland to see an iconic Melbourne Tram underwater. It's about time we had one here in our great bay.

Support Us: The Victorian Artificial Reef Society seeks your support of our application to be gifted a Melbourne Tram from VicTrack, and then have VicTrack, the Victorian Government and Parks Victoria prepare the tram and sink it in Port Phillip as an artificial reef and tourist attraction. Let's show them we care.

Proposed Location: We believe the area known as Elsa's Reef, about 40 metres off Rye Pier, in 7 metres of water, could be a suitable site. It's a very attractive location given it's not subject to extreme tides and currents, plus it already has good amenities available nearby. It's accessible from the shore, pier, boat and even a paddleboard. Plus the area already has a proven track record as a safe dive site. But we'll work with the government to finalise a suitable location.

Doing Your Bit: By supporting this petition you get to show the state authorities that there is wide community support for our proposal. Together we can make this happen!
