Diving in Australia
Everything you have to know and the best Dive Sites
If you think about diving in Australia, the first thing that comes to mind is most probably: The Great Barrier Reef. The largest reef in the world offers incredible biodiversity at a relatively shallow depth. Nevertheless, not only the bodies of water around Queensland, where the reef is, are worth a visit. Diving in Tasmania, West Australia, on Kangaroo Island or Christmas Island is also worthwhile.
We will show you the best diving sites in Australia and give you tips for memorable holidays “Down Under”: With about 35,000 kilometres of coast all around the continent, every diver will surely find his favourite spot – you simply have to know where to look!
