From the Great Barrier Reef on Australia’s Eastern coast to the pristine diving coastline in the West, you are spoilt for choice. Australia is without a doubt a world-class travel and diving destination with spectacular sights and stunning arrays of marine life. Whether you are examining the colourful corals, diving through giant kelp or having an encounter with a whale shark, it will be an unforgettable experience.

Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef is known as the holiday destination of Australia and rightly so. The reef is the largest in the world and is undoubtedly a natural wonder of the world. South Australia has much to offer to divers, particularly around the area of Adelaide. There is wreck-diving around Port Lincoln and much unique marine life to be found.

Below are some of our favourite Australian dive destination including some around the Great Barrier Reef and some further afield.
