An underwater photographer's paradise

Situated directly north of Australia in the centre of the Asia-Pacific region, the country is surrounded by the Bismarck, Coral and Solomon seas, whose constant movements feed and enrich the marine environment. 

The immense diversity of sites include barrier reefs, coral walls, coral gardens, patch reefs, fringing reefs, sea grass beds, coral atolls and wrecks.

Diving is possible all year round

Land-based and live-aboard diving is spread along 17,000 kms of coastline and across 45,000 sq kms of reef systems so divers can enjoy minimal contact with other dive groups. 

The optimal seasons are generally from mid-April to mid-June, and mid-September to mid-December. Water temperature ranges from 26˚C along the edge of the Coral Sea and up to 31˚C in the Bismarck Sea, with visibility from 15 to 50 metres.
