There has been a lot of discussion on the topic but the fastest way is to contact your local maritime museum. Most of what you find will go to Australia with a small cut for you. Because of that, most wrecks will remain undiscovered. I know Hugh Edwards and the late Max Cramer who discovered the Batavia shipwreck off the northern coast of Western Australia. They spent a lot of time wrestling with the government over their treasure trove.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Thanks I think I'll be going to visit them shortly and I don't really mind about the cut but the fact I found it is what I'm after.
