South Australia is a world class diving destination most famous for it’s Leafy seadragons, Great white sharks and giant, mating cuttlefish. There is however, much more to see: reefs, muck, caves and ship wrecks; some of historical importance and others have been sunk specifically for divers. The shore diving is easy and varied, mostly jetties. The water temperature ranges from 24°C in mid-summer to 10°C in winter.
This guide is designed to showcase some of South Australia’s best shore diving, exhibiting SA’s underwater fauna. It provides a useful resource for underwater photographers and recreational divers. Some of these creatures are common, others extremely rare:
