Fly point is mainly a macro dive site with over 100 different species of nudibranch have been reported here. It is in a sanctuary (no take) zone in the Port Stephens - Great Lakes Marine Park. Maximum depth is close to 30m but most of the photography subjects are in the 5 - 12m range. There is a huge sponge garden which would take many dives to explore properly.
