The Brisbane Guyot lies about 189 km (102 nautical miles) off the coast of Queensland (show Queensland on map).

In the near vicinity of the Brisbane Guyot the water depth ranges from about 2110 to 4860 metres deep (about 1150 to 2660 fathoms / 6930 to 15900 feet). Based on this, the Brisbane Guyot seems to rise about 2740 metres (1500 fathoms / 9000 feet) above the sea floor .

What is a guyot? A guyot is flat top seamount thought to originally be an extinct volcano that was once above the ocean surface and has been eroded down flat over time. A good example of a guyot close to Australia is the Cascade Guyot about 200km off the coast of Tasmania. You can clearly see in the 20km terrain profile how the guyot is flat on top.

Make sure you check out the terrain profile for the Brisbane Guyot.
