AAP logoAAP 9/08/2016

Queensland will formally bid for the defence department to sink the decommissioned HMAS Tobruk off its coast as a scuba diving site.

Areas off Bundaberg, Hervey Bay, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast are all considered suitable sites to sink the 127 metre long vessel.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the dive site would be a huge drawcard for Queensland's billion dollar tourism industry.
