Diving The Great Barrier Reef

Often considered the pinnacle of all diving spots in the world - it is a great dive spot, if you can call it that. It is approximately the size of Italy.

Turtles are always beautiful, graceful in the water and even when eating...

Easy to get close when eating as Isabel shows us.

I found Nemo and his dad.

Delicious food in Cairns

Something so enchanting about a boat out on the ocean...

A nice sunset helps too.

Surfing is a good idea.

Diving in Byron Bay

Visability was a bit rough but the diving was fun. Great stuff from turtles to 3 types of sharks to rays to lobsters to spiders and more great stuff...

Getting to know the locals!

Lone Pine Santuary has some very loveable marsupials...

(Kangaroo is also quite tasty!)
