  • Description

    A FESTIVAL UNDER WATER - FOR SKINDIVERS. IT'S AUSTRALIA'S ANNUAL SKINDIVING FESTIVAL, THIS YEAR HELD AT HERON ISLAND, OFF THE CENTRAL QUEENSLAND COAST.

    MORE THAN 150 DIVERS ARE TAKING PART, WITH ALL COMPETITIONS, JUDGING AND SIGHTSEEING DONE UNDER THE CRYSTAL-CLEAR WATERS.

    HERON ISLAND LIES ON THE GREAT BARRIER REEF, THAT FABULOUS RIDGE OF CORAL WHICH EXTENDS DOWN THE WHOLE QUEENSLAND COAST. THE BIGGEST MASS OF CORAL IN THE WORLD. A RIOT OF COLOURFUL CORAL FORMATIONS AND THE HOME OF HUNDREDS OF DIFFERENT EXOTIC FISH.

    IT'S A DANGEROUS PLACE, TOO. WHERE A FOOT CAN BE SLICED OFF AT THE SNAP OF A GIANT CLAM. OR AN ARM POISONED BY THE NEEDLE-SHARP SPINE OF A SEA-URCHIN.
