Australia Diving

Every inch of the waters surrounding Australia's massive coastline is full of something to offer no matter what type of diving you are into. The Great Barrier Reef is home to over 3,000 reefs and is a must-see on any diver's bucket list. Adelaide is famous for its multitude of shipwrecks, South West Rocks is famous for its shark action and Exmouth is famous for Ningaloo reef, where whale shark and manta ray sightings are common. The wreck of the Yongala out of Townsville is a very worthy side trip and will awe shipwreck enthusiasts. With an abundance of options, you can pick your own adventure from any where in the country and combine it with a visit to some of the world's most amazing sights and people.
