These reef modules are installed around the Sydney Opera House as part of the Sydney Opera House Reef Project, providing habitat for the marine life of Sydney Harbour. They are constructed of steel and concrete, creating structure for plants and animals to grow on, and enclosed spaces for mobile organisms to use as shelter or ambush sites.
Kelp has grown around the reef structures, obscuring their bases and providing valuable habitat.
