My first ever dive on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. It's what inspired me to dive. No-one forgets their first dive!
Neill, Original Diver
The vast island of Australia is a country of natural beauty and vivid contrasts both on land and in the seas. Think spectacular landscapes, incredible coral, abundant marine life, UNESCO World Heritage wilderness areas, wildlife that has evolved in isolation for over 50 million years and vibrant, modern cities boasting world famous man-made landmarks such as Sydney Harbour and the iconic Opera House.

Our Guide to Diving Holidays in Australia
There are a number of must-dive trips within Australia from the Great Barrier Reef on the east coast to snorkelling with whale sharks on Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia to the world's most southerly coral reef atLord Howe Island. Combining diving any (or all) of these with a visit to the vibrant cities and deserted outback is an incredible experience.
Several of the team have been to Australia in recent years and we've been keeping a close eye on the crop of fantastic new lodges that opened recently and have taken the standard of accommodation to another level.
The hospitality on offer in Oz is second to none and we can arrange any number of memorable activities as well. Despite the long flight, don't rule this out as a family destination either.
