Dive Trail At Coogee Beach

Engineer/Artist, Albert de Boer worked closely with Cockburn Council to designfabricate and install features for the Dive Trail at Coogee Beach. The Trail surrounds the site of the wreck of The Omeo, which ran aground in 1905. Albert built both a replica of a cannon from The Batavia and an Instagram-friendly viewing porthole for divers. He has also mounted and installed an anchor and a railway wheel dredged up from Elizabeth Quay development.

Albert worked with the City of Cockburn to mount and install two large anchors on the foreshore in Omeo Park above the site of The Dive Trail.

Artforms also created the signage for this installation.

Artificial reef was donated to The Trail by our partners, Naval Base company Subcon, who assisted with the installation of Albert’s cannon.
