Dip your head beneath the waters of our seas and lakes and you’ll find yourself in an alien landscape, teeming with all sorts of strange and wonderful creatures.
With just a mask, snorkel and a pair of fins, you can spend some quality time in this otherworldly environment.
Here are some of our favourite snorkelling locations.
Smooth Pool, Eyre Peninsula
Even when the ocean is roaring, Smooth Pool is likely to stay true to its name. Sheltered by a chunky reef, it’s well protected from the swells that roll in from the Great Australian Bight. This makes it a popular hangout for ocean fish that prefer the quiet life, and there are plenty of nooks and crannies to explore. There’s also a lot going on in the seagrass.
Spectacularly located beneath towering orange cliffs, this is a great place to visit, if only for the scenery. Any non-snorkellers in your group can spend their time checking out the action in the tidal rock pools and posting snaps to Instagram.
