Pimpernel Rock is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in Graftom, Nsw, Australia. The maximum depth is over 150ft/46m. The average visibility is 91-100ft/28-30m. This dive site provides bathrooms and airfills.

Pimpernel Rock is located right on the North western point of Solitary Islands Marine Park. It is a advanced dive site on it’s best day, because of a few factors; The sheer depth of the site, and the vunerability of currents

Pimpernel Rock has no mooring, it can be accessed by an anchor line placed in the correct position. The site is not always friendly! Any current can be difficult and more than slight current, can make it a challenge beyond diver’s ability to get down to the site! This area is known for Large Pelagics including big Kingfish and Mulloway and common sightings of Grey Nurse Sharks in the deeper cave areas.

Pimpernal Rock is mind blowing when you get the conditions right! The descent down the peak leads you into the entrance of the Cave that is more of a huge swim thru than a cave. This cave is the size of a tunnel that would allow a Semi Trailer Truck thru! Within the cave is deep water marine life. Sea whips and Sea Tulips are something that you notice that are different, as these species don’t thrive in shallow depths. The Bottom of the Cave is 39 metres and areas around can get deeper.
