About this book

Australia is blessed with one of the most diverse marine ecosystems in the world. From its tropical north to its cool temperate waters, the land down under is truly a diver's paradise.

Diving Down Under divers can explore amazing coral reefs, shipwrecks, walls, pinnacles, artificial reefs, kelp forests, sponge gardens and even muck sites. Australia is also a destination where divers can encounter many wonderful endemic species seen nowhere else in the world, such as colourful seadragons, crossdressing giant cuttlefish, bizarre handfish, and camouflaged wobbegongs.

Diving Down Under is a complete guide book for the diver who wants to explore the best dive sites around Australia and also encounter the unique marine life found around this island nation. Rather than document every dive site in Australia, and there are tens of thousands, the book details the best dive sites from each area, the must-do sites.

Diving Down Under naturally covers the best dive sites on the famous Great Barrier Reef, but also documents fabulous dive sites in each state. Some of these sites are already famous like Fish Rock Cave and The Navy Pier, but there are many dive sites included that are just as good, and largely unknown outside the Australian dive community.

Filled with wonderful pictures, Diving Down Under is a must have guide book for anyone wanting to explore the unique underwater environment of Australia.
