Decommissioned Australian navy ship , HMAS Adelaide , moored off Avoca Beach on the NSW Central Coast at sunrise this morning,April 12th .The ship was towed into position late Monday evening from Sydney Harbour. It is due to be scuttled tomorrow morning to form an artificial diving reef .
The sinking was originally planned for May last year but a local environment group managed to stop it a few days before much to the dismay of the thousands who had planned to come and see the show . Particularly dismayed were the local community groups who had organised fundraising events for the day .Thousands of dated souvenir t-shirts went to waste .The environment group seem to have exhausted all avenues for stopping it so it looks as if the scuttling will go ahead tomorrow .
