English (Translate this text in English): Two kilometres off the end of the end of The "Kingsway" this site is easily picked up on a depth sounder by lining up on The "Kingsway" road that leads into Cronulla and heading east north east approximately two kilometres offshore. It's a fairly large underwater bommie that rises up off 22-24m depth (depending on tide) to the top of the bommie at 16-18m. It can be dived on three sides. The inner western side has a small cave (non-penetration type). See also: Tom Byron's "Dives On The NSW East Coast". Commercial dive boats tend to anchor on the North/western tip of reef to give quick and easy access for divers to the cave, however, the reef on the eastern side is very good and often cleaner vis wise. In days long gone by now, dive agencies used to use 'Osbourne' as the 16m 'boat dive' for new students doing their boat dive component. So it's a fairly easy and good dive for most divers with little experience.
