Description

Australia has over 20,000 kilometers (12,420 miles) of magnificent coastline with superb diving in the tropical waters of the Great Barrier Reef and northern Western Australia, as well as brilliant temperate-water diving in the southern states and Tasmania. Of all the states, however, Queensland rates as the mecca for Australian divers and overseas visitors. The Great Barrier Reef is one of the natural wonders of the world and the diving here is excellent.
