The Toba is a very small wreck located on the south side of Peak Island less than a kilometre from the Hamelin Bay boat ramp. It is located in 7 metres of water and the site covers only about 10 metres by 5 metres right up against the reef shelf into shallow water. Although the site is not large the surrounding overhands and hard corals around Peak Island make the site a nice and easy dive. The Toba was originally a pearling lugger from the Torres Straight and then Broome in the states northwest, at the time of it's loss the Toba was employed as a fishing vessel when it was wrecked just off Hamelin Bay.
