Diving in Australia

Very different regions and climates throughout this island will make your visit to Australia unique. This country is home to the Great Barrier Reef and the heritage listed Daintree rainforest. Some unique species inhabit this place, like the kangaroos and the koalas. The centre of the country is where you will find the famous Ayers Rock, Uluru. Tasmania is a must-visit destination for its great wines, seafood and produce.

The largest island in the world, Australia, offers a great diversity of diving adventures, from tropical diving in the north, to cold water diving, shipwreck explorations, and colorful sponge gardens in the south. All levels of divers are welcome in “the land down under”, as it has over dozens of dive sites, very accessible shore dives and over 25,000 kilometers (15535 miles) of coastline. You will be amazed as you explore The Great Barrier Reef and encounter many different and colorful fish species. You can also visit Tasmania and encounter unique wildlife both inland and at sea.
